You will learn the coiling technique using natural and recycled materials. This technique dates back 10,000 years and provides a strong sense of connection to ancestors, past lives, family/community and self. With each stitch, passing round and round, a journey of new connection, energy and growth begins.
Coiling is a creative meditation that is really beautiful in a group circle bringing free-flowing peaceful energy to the maker and a greater sense of connection to Mother Earth, the self and those around us.
We will have the opportunity to learn about weaving with natural, recycled and sustainable materials including harvesting and preparation of invasive species.
The Woven Dream Basket Weaving Blog provides further details on this process.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE
You will receive a light snack, tea, water and materials to start and complete a basket, guidance through the weaving process and will leave with a new meditative and creative practice. As the workshop ends you will have access to resources and can add yourself to the private weaving group, as well as a chance to purchase additional weaving materials to continue your weaving journey.
We will be located in the new and lovely inspirational Artifact Gallery in qathet. This is an intimate weaving circle comfortably seated on the floor with cushions (chairs available if needed). Suitable for 11yrs and up.
