This beautiful morning class will show you how to create a useable or artful (or both!) hand woven dish using raffia, threads and found objects. You’ll be guided in the techniques needed to create various stitches, from starting to finishing a piece and options for including other fibres and materials.

Basket weaving is a meditative and simply beautiful process that helps us to slow down in our daily life, while creating something useful, meaningful and beautiful.

We’ll be using Ellie’s own botanically dyed raffia, and talk about how to dye your own at home using kitchen supplies and gather gatherings. You’ll go home with an instruction sheet and the inspired bubble to add basket weaving to your everyday moments. There’ll be naturally dye raffia available for sale, but all materials needed for the class are included in the class cost.
