ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS:
Combining creativity, meditative process, connection to nature and beautiful time spent shared with others, these workshops bring this ancient craft back into your hands! If you're keen to learn the art of basket weaving but are unable to make it to the workshop dates advertised, or would you like to weave with a special group of people, these custom workshops would be perfect for you. They're great for all kinds of celebrations and occasions - birthdays, women's groups, hen's nights, baby blessings, work events, farewells or just for fun! I can bring all the materials needed to you or organise a workshop venue in Olinda or Elsternwick depending on availability of dates. Get in touch so we can organise details that suit you!

Visual artist Shelley Krycer is deeply inspired by cycles. Cycles observed in nature and cycles seen within. Traces left of time passed and hints of what's to come. Her practice explores the delicate dynamics at play between self, other and environment. Watching this interconnectedness as a single ecosystem, Shelley considers a movement towards balance.
Shelley’s practice includes painting, drawing, installation, collaboration, design and object making including basket weaving and jewellery. Shelley holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) with first class honours from Monash University and a Graduate Diploma in Teaching from Melbourne University. She teaches workshops and her work has won awards, has been exhibited locally and interstate and is held in private collections.
