Join this fun-filled morning weaving workshop in Curl Curl with weaving expert Catriona Pollard and learn the wonderful basketry technique of looping. Looping is a basketry technique that has been used for thousands of years across most cultures. It allows you to create light and versatile forms.

You’ll be using paper cord and will weave around a jar and end up with a gorgeous looped basket. Suitable for anyone who wants to have a creative morning, no basketry experience is needed. By the end of this workshop, not only will you have a gorgeous basket, but you will be confident in this basketry technique.

All material is included, you’ll just need to bring a jar around 15 cm x 6 cm deep.

  • You want to learn the ancient basketry technique of looping, but don’t know where to start.
  • You don’t have any experience or want to further develop your weaving.
