Weave a Raffia Bag Workshop

How to weave with natural raffia



4 hours Class size 1 to 12 label $125 - $135 ($135 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $125 for 2+ guests)


In-person classes are permitted in Queensland, under the state government's guidelines

Your host, Work-Shop 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)

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

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.
