Basket Weaving Workshop

Cost: $35 per student (Min. 12)

Time: 2-4 Hours


Using a range of natural materials found in local gardens and the surrounding bush, students will have the opportunity to weave a beautiful and functional basket.

This project can be tailored to fit a range of age groups. Younger students will use a simple basket making frame to weave their materials around. Older students will begin their basket from scratch and have the freedom to decide on the size and design.

This project enables students to develop an understanding of the uses of natural materials and fibres while allowing them to improve they 3D art and design skills.

This project addresses the art and design elements and principles of texture, form, colour, line, balance, size and repetition.
