Traditional Basket Weaving
Unexpectedly I fell crazy in love with weaving from my very first basket!
I love the feel of natural fibres running through my fingers, the rhythmic flow of the stitches, the endless creative possibilities and the meditative state that one falls into.
I love the circles of women chattering, friendships that form, the nourishing care expressed and the bursting wild excitement as the creative juices flow.
In 2015 I learnt to weave from Kate Rydge and Ingrid Riverstone of 'Bare Weaving'. In 2016 I was introduced to Kate's adopted mother Roslyn, from an Arnhem land lineage of master weavers. Roslyn is one of the dearest people I have ever meet, her hugs have the warmth of eternity in them. To weave with her is the epitome of Magic!
I am a beginner basket weaver and am gathering skill and maturity in coil style basketry and so this is the level I teach too. For more advance baskets please do contact Kate and Ingrid
