Sky explores the process of upcycling her studio scraps into arty crafty rope and then coils this rope into colourful decorative baskets. Learning her rope making technique means you will be inspired to never throw away a yarn scrap or item of clothing again. The rope is not only made into baskets but can become rugs, jewellery and wall art… the applications are only limited by your imagination. In this workshop you will learn how to make the rope and then coil into a basket. Materials provided.

Sky was clear and easy to get along with.
Material was available to all. It was fun and the time went by quickly.
This pic I provided was that of my work colleague who went home and completed the basket and placed her loved plant in it. Well done Tulin! Overall a really fun workshop to attend.

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday learning from Sky. Her enthusiasm and creativity just flowed in this class to create in us a desire to create.

Her teaching definately made me want to explore all the other classes Sky has to offer

Skye was an excellent teacher- providing clear instructions and creating a friendly, relaxed atmosphere in her studio. We were given a choice of materials and could take sufficient materials home to finish our projects. The technique is quite easy but produces a fun result. Skye's own work around the room was inspiring. I would recommend this class.
