These baskets are common in many different cultures throughout the world, and involve creating two hoops (a handle and rim), adding ‘ribs’, and weaving from both ends of the basket into the middle. During the workshop, you will also learn all about the harvesting and preparation of natural materials. 

What’s included:

All materials and tuition are included. You will complete your own melon basket, which you will take home with you. Tea, coffee and treats are also provided, please BYO lunch or purchase snacks in store.

About your tutor:

Jillian Culey’s connection with weaving began nearly 20 years ago when she lived and worked on a remote island in the Pacific. After a long hiatus Jillian reconnected with weaving 8 years ago. Now working with a wide variety of natural materials, she enjoys experimenting with various techniques including, twining, ribbed construction, random weave and string making. Jillian has had the opportunity to learn from a range of master weavers both in Australia and overseas. She has exhibited her work in galleries nationally and is experienced in teaching people of all ages.
