Wrapping, whipping and knotting with Siân Boucherd


Explore design principles of balance, proportion and movement in this workshop with fibre artist Siân Boucherd. You will spend the session applying various basketry techniques to create a soft sculpture or wearable piece of art.

Weaving is a wonderfully meditative practice that allows you to unplug, slow down and craft something unique. No prior skills required but if you are good with your hands and want to learn some new tricks, this workshop is perfect for you.

All tools, materials and morning tea will be provided.
