Friday 3 February, 10am-3pm, Craft Opportunities; Rectangular Basket-Weaving

Course Overview

In this workshop Diana Duncan teaches participants to weave a rectangular basket from locally sourced plant materials, suitable for storing seed packs, pegs, cutlery, bottles and so on. This technique is an extension of our round basket and can be replicated with other fibres and around other forms to create baskets of almost any size. We will be using tī kōuka/cabbage tree leaves as these are such an abundant and multi-purpose material that we can find all around us.

Maker

 

Diana Duncan learnt tī kōuka string and basket making from Juliet Arnott in 2016 and joined Rekindle as a tutor in 2019. In this time Diana has explored this materials use in a myriad of ways. Having studied fashion design and worked in clothing repairs and alterations Diana has always enjoyed creative design and problem solving. Her desire to tread lightly on this earth and conserve its resources has found a natural fit with this locally abundant and durable material. She has also worked with willow and is eager to deepen her weaving knowledge experience.
