Yarn and Weaving Workshop

Learn how to weave accessories using natural raffia



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 40     label $65


Join textile artist, Leecee Carmichael and learn how to weave accessories using natural raffia locally sourced from String Harvest, in this relaxing Brisbane workshop.

Leecee will teach the coiling technique, which you will use to create your own pair of woven earrings. You will be able to weave your own styles and take them home to continue weaving. The coiling technique is a universal weave which First Nations people have been using for millennia to weave baskets and other forms supporting everyday life activities.

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
  • Coloured raffia bundles
  • Earring hooks
  • Scissors
  • Needles
  • Your creations to take home!

What to bring
  • Nimble Fingers
  • Optional: Refreshments to have while you craft (we have cups!)

Leecee is a Quandamooka woman and a descendant of the Ngugi people, one of three clans who are the traditional custodians of Quandamooka, also known as Yoolooburrabee – people of the sand and sea. Quandamooka Country comprises the waters and lands of and around Moreton Bay, south-east Queensland, Australia.

Her practice honours her cultural heritage by incorporating materials collected from Country, utilising traditional techniques and expressing contemporary adaptations through the mediums of painting, weaving and textiles. Leecee comes from a family of artists and curators and works closely with her female kin to revive, nurture and preserve knowledge and cultural practices.

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.

Lovely, relaxed class. Leecee was friendly and generous with her knowledge and skills. The workshop had a great, chilled vibe. Looking forward to doing more classes there.

Very helpful, Knowledgeable and patient. Made it a nice relaxed environment. It was also great to be able to take home raffia and the needle to keep practicing. Too deadly Leece
