Basket Weaving Class

Gain an introduction to basket weaving in Melbourne



3 hours Class size 12 to 40     label $80

If your mountain of craft supplies is reaching Everest status, this workshop offers the perfect DIY storage solution. Don’t become a basket case; weave one instead. Spend a meditative afternoon basket weaving with natural rope, plants, raffia, and cotton yarn.

Aside from producing functional and beautiful works of art, basketry offers relaxation and contemplation while keeping your hands busy. You’ll come away with the skills to create bespoke storage solutions to suit your supplies, your space, and your life.

Unwind, artfully solve your storage problems, and learn an age-old skill. This class will cover the coil and stitch method of weaving, a quick and easy way to create a plethora of attractive vessels and lids. More complex techniques such as twinning will be demonstrated throughout the class. Breathe in, breathe out, and watch your own creation manifest in your lap. Om.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.

Roz from Be Kind Textiles

5.0 (3)

After graduating from Textile Design and Development at RMIT, where she majored in weave and printmaking, Roz sought to distance herself from the questionable ethics of fast fashion and textile waste. Using sustainable methods and ethically-sourced materials, she produced an austere range of high-quality garments under the brand Be Kind Textiles. Driven by an unquenchable passion, Roz spent the following years delving into every craft within her reach. She now proffers her results and lifelong love of art and textiles with anyone who’s willing.

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

I’m a novice when it comes to creative projects. Roz is very patient and helpful and the venue was great. Thank you.

Toyah Horman Jan 2020


Had a most wonderful time learning the basics of basket weaving. Roz was a great teacher and she ensured we all knew what we were doing, as well as catering for each persons expertise. Was a very relaxed environment and I’m looking forward to applying my newly learned skills.

Virginia Swanton Jan 2020


Roz is a great instructor, providing clear demonstrations of each stage and technique used. We left with our basket complete (or almost) and new skills. All materials were provided and we were able to take home some extra to finish our basket. The venue was easy to find and spacious. I’d be keen to do another course to learn more.
