Basket Making & Weaving is one of the oldest crafts around. Using raffia and a needle, you'll learn the techniques to create your own woven pieces and from this can go on to developing different shapes and styles of your own.

This ecourse features videos showing how to start and finish a basket, as well as different stitch techniques, you'll learn how to build walls, add handles and change colours in your threads. I'll also talk about adding other things, such as different threads or fibres.

Hi, I’m an artist, author, creative maker & mentor. My ethos is about slowing down, creating intentionally & gently guiding Creatives on how to listen to your inner whisper.

I’m also a mother, lover of walking bare-feet in the forest & swimming naked in the ocean, textile crafter & creative teacher.

I share stories & heart-ful living, in a slow intentional manner. I’m truly happiest talking with my flowers in the garden, a light sprinkle of rain tumbling on the heads of my children who are gathering blooms beside me. And watching the way the light falls on the tall gum trees in our forest.

The complex aspect of me means that I love both the quiet of crafting & art-making alone, but also feel energised by spending time with other creatives sharing our time together, stitch by stitch, word by word.

Tea & cake, & lots of messy fabrics & tangled threads, along with gathered leaves, twigs, seedpods or bird nests play a big part of my life
