Weave a Raffia Bag Workshop

How to weave with natural raffia



4 hours Class size 1 to 6     label $130

Join designer Charlotte Lynn Holyoak for a fabulous afternoon of working with raffia. This bag is extremely easy to make and requires no previous sewing or plating experience!

In this beginner-friendly workshop, ou’ll learn to make a four plait braid and the braiding rhythm is very meditative. My classes are limited to a maximum of ten students, allowing for lots of one on one tuition plus giggles and chatter. When your girlfriends ask you where you bought your bag, you’ll have the priceless pleasure and pride of saying “I made it!” 

You will take home your own natural raffia bag and go home with the knowledge of how to colour the raffia for their future projects.

This workshop has a max ten-person capacity – book quickly to avoid disappointment!

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.



What you'll get
  • 300 grams of Natural Raffia
  •  Leather Handles

What to bring

Nothing but nimble fingers!

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.

Well prepared materials. Good class size. Charlotte was very personable and provided lots of one on one support!

Ali Goh Sep 2020


Loved this workshop! I've done a couple of basket weaving workshops before but this is definitely the fastest and the one you'd probably replicate at home later. Charlotte is very friendly and explains in a really easy to understand way. The class was well organised, it was an easy to find venue, and I'm very happy with the bag I made. I liked this workshop so much that I'm going to organise a private class for Charlotte to teach me how to make a hat.

Charlotte ran a friendly and efficient workshop in which everyone achieved the goal of making a Rafia bag. Timing was perfect and workshop was well resourced. Thanks for your dedication, Charlotte.
