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

You’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



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:


What you'll get

  • 300 grams of Natural Raffia

  • Leather Handles


What to bring

  • Nothing but nimble fingers

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.
