Coiling is an ancient basketry method where the materials are stitched together rather than woven. Mariposa is a stitch that creates spaces between the rows, creating a lattice-like structure. It is an easy, satisfying and attractive method of basket making. The tutor Meri Peach, a professional basket maker and fibre sculptor, will guide students through the preparation and use of plant materials for basketry. Included in the workshop will be discussion around the history and culture of basket making, explanation of gathering and preparation of materials, and demonstrations followed by one-to-one instruction. Notes and all materials will be provided.

Class fee includes all materials, morning tea and lunch.
