Raffia Basket Weaving Workshop - Central Coast

Provided by:

Event runs from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM


Are you interested in learning how to weave but aren't sure where to start? In this Central Coast workshop, you can learn how to make your very own Raffia basket using classic weaving techniques. Join Heather at her Pretty Beach studio and learn the coil weaving technique using Raffia sourced from Madagascar. Raffia has been used in weaving for centuries throughout Europe and Africa, mixed with other fibres like wool, jute, cotton. When weaving with fibre, texture and colour amazing things are made, which are completely unique to the weaver. You will be amazed at the different styles and shapes, colour and textures that you will create in this relaxing class. Enjoy refreshments and a cheese platter as you breathe in the calming sea air from Pretty Beach. Whether it be with a group of friends, family, for a corporate event, team building activity, or an open invitation workshop, this workshop is a wonderful way to bring out your creativity and generosity.
