Make Your Own Nested Hanging Basket with Anna from Wilding Studio
Make your own Japanese style hanging basket for an indoor or outdoor plant. In this workshop, Anna Macoboy of Wilding will teach you the contemporary technique of random weaving and take you through creating a basic basket form using natural or dyed cane.
You will then add various foraged natural elements to build upon this until you finish with a beautiful sculptural hanging basket.
The basket will suit a plant in a 17cm pot and will be completed with braided wire and optional coconut fibre.
All tools, materials and morning tea will be provided.
Date and time:
Saturday 16th of February 10:00am - 1:00pm

She has been experimenting with various techniques for making hand-woven baskets for ten years.
