3 hours Class size 1 to 40 label $110


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)

Also, this class has a flexible cancellation/rescheduling policy, so participants are encouraged not to attend if they are unwell

Basket Weaving is one of the oldest traditional crafts practised in many countries around the world. The variety of materials used is endless and mainly sourced from plant material available in the local environment.

The joy of making a basket from materials collected from the natural environment is both satisfying and exciting. You will be filled with pride as you admire your own handmade basket and the joy you can experience when you give a basket you made, filled with homemade goodies is a pleasure to give and an immense delight to receive.

We will use materials we have sourced from the garden, and vines we have collected from revegetation and clearing sites

You will learn how to create a Random Weave Wild Basket.

This basket consists of a Randomly Rigid Rim which has a few Randomly place Ribs, then lots of Randomly woven Vines.

There are only a few basic rules and lots of Wild and Creative Freeform Weaving.

These baskets are ideal to store your Fruit and Veg or to display with pride as an original work of art!

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

  • All materials supplied to make a large basket

  • Tips on how to collect, prepare and store organic weaving materials

  • The skills you will learn will allow you to make and create many styles of baskets using endless types of readily available resources


What to bring

  • Wear old clothes or an apron as it can get a little grubby

  • Scissors are supplied, but bring along a favourite pair of secateurs if you have some

  • You will go home with a useful handmade basket, instruction leaflet, plant material list and the skills to make many more basket creations

Wild Baskets is a joint venture between Judith and her husband Richard – Judith the weaver, and Richard the Hunter Gatherer.

Judith’s interest of weaving baskets began when her grandmother lost her sight and one of her therapies was basket weaving. I would sit with her and pass pieces and prompt her when she missed a bit. Over 20 years ago, I got involved with Bush Care and Revegetation Projects often removing weed vines which are strangling our native environment.  She started using pest vines to weave baskets. These baskets are eco friendly, beautiful, and useful works of art.

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.
