Basket Making & Handicrafts Workshop - Saturday 21 November 10am @ The Self Seed Studio, Lennox Head - register interest here.
$30 + $10 for materials (includes hand harvested weed vine Ipomoea cairica (coastal morning glory), dehydrated orange slices, jute etc)
Work with your hands to create beautiful, simple works of art and creativity. I love keeping age-old traditions alive through sharing skills and handicrafts. Creating like this provides an alternative to plastic party decorations and home decor and returns us to a place of connection. Share a tea and get crafty. All materials supplied.
Create using the vine of the Ipomoea cairica (coastal morning glory), known as a rampant weed. You'll learn how to identify it, harvest safely, prepare for weaving and some weaving techniques and inspirational knowledge to design your own.
