What to expect
Join BOUND artists Marg Murray and Valda Murray for a four-week weaving short course where you will learn coil weaving techniques to create and complete your own raffia basket. Each participant will receive a ‘starter pack’ containing a small woven coil base and a plastic needle to create a basket that is unique in colour, shape and size. The series provides the opportunity for participants to connect with Marg and Valda, gain hands-on skills and develop confidence in their ability over the multiple sessions. This course is suitable for people of all skill levels, beginners welcome.

The session will be held on mats and cushions on the floor. Chairs will also be available – participants are encouraged to BYO cushion for extra comfort while we weave!
