About this experience

You will learn how to weave a small basket from foraged fibres using a weaving technique called the stake and strand technique. This course is a variation of our original basket made from tī kōuka and is a great chance for those who have learnt this weaving technique to experiment with other materials, play with shaping, and learn new border styles. 

You will begin your basket using tī kōuka/cabbage tree leaves; an abundant, multi-purpose resource found all around us. You will then be able to experiment with some seasonally available materials to create your own unique basket. These materials may include corn husks, ivy, willow, pine needles, dogwood etc. You are welcome to bring any materials from home to weave into your basket.
