This class with Diana Duncan takes place in our workshop at the Arts Centre, which is located upstairs in the Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.
This course will give you a resourceful skill that you'll be able to use in so many ways for the rest of your life! This technique for basket-weaving can be used with many different materials. We will teach you how to use tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves as these are abundantly available.
If you have access to fallen tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves, do bring in as big a bundle as you can! We would be most appreciative as we always need more of this valuable resource.
There are 10 places available in this workshop. This class is suitable for adults.
Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.
About your tutor
Diana 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.
Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.
This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants
We are grateful for the support of CNZ, which has allowed us to offer this class at a subsidised rate.
