BARE Weaving Workshops birthed from Ingrid & Kate’s passion to share traditional basket weaving skills with local women in the North Coast of NSW.
We focus on weaving with local native plant fibres and only dye with natural materials. Joining us for a workshop will connect you with an ancient tradition of women’s wisdom and immerse you into a deeper connection with your local environment.
BARE Weaving Workshops explore: how to harvest & process native plants responsibly; coil, string & dilly bag weaving techniques; and, how to naturally dye your basket materials. You’ll learn about a variety of natural plant fibres and dye materials which are suitable for weaving & are found on the mid-North Coast.
If you are already experienced with coil, string or dilly bag weaving we’ll have a variety of technique extensions available, such as earrings, necklaces, arm bands, fur & feather string, lampshades, mats and hats.
