Looping and Netting in the Calyx with Lissa de Sailles

In this workshop we will explore creative ways to wrap objects with looping techniques as well as how to make string bags and light shades. Participants will be shown several ways to incorporate stitching patterns into their work with an attention to tensioning and further technical considerations.
Lissa de Sailles has been involved with crafting for most of her life and has worked in creative industries since the early 1980’s. Her basketry work is underpinned by a sound knowledge of aesthetic and technical considerations acquired by six years of study both locally and internationally.

Includes material fee $20 waxed Irish linen and twine starter kit
