Your host, Sydney Community College is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Learn how to weave a basket in this fun and relaxing Sydney workshop! You will get to take home your own small handmade basket at the end of the workshop.

This introductory workshop is designed for beginners with no experience of basketry, as you will learn the necessary skills to make beautiful and practical baskets. In particular, your instructor will teach you the traditional basketry technique of coil weaving.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to basketry and move through to a discussion on the materials needed and where to obtain them (you will be using natural plant materials and yarn in the workshop). 

You will then learn about sustainable practices and online resources for when you’re creating your own pieces at home. Your instructor will demonstrate techniques to create a woven vessel or three-dimensional object including getting started, changing materials, developing structure, creating walls and finishing your piece.

At the end of the workshop you will take home your own small basket that you created and all the skills needed to take up basket weaving at home.

You are eligible for a 10% discount when you provide proof of enrolment at Tillys Art Supplies (Rozelle), Newtown Art Supplies and Eckersley’s Art Supplies (Sydney). Also at Dans Art Design – enter code ‘SCC’ at the checkout.

Note: Eckersleys Art Supplies and Lincraft haberdashery are both in York Street, across the road from our city campus.

Please note: This class requires a minimum number of students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform and fully refund you, so please watch your email/SMS 1 day prior to the class

 



Aside from this class, Sydney Community College also has the following coming up:
