BARE Weaving Workshops birthed from Kate & Ingrid’s passion to share traditional basket weaving skills and the magic of Natural Dyes.
Kate & Ingrid are fibre artists from the North Coast, NSW. BARE Weaving Workshops are regularly offered through out the year and deeply connect participants to the ancient tradition of women's weaving.
We welcome you to join us in the enchanting world of traditional weaving...
2 Day BARE Weaving Dilly Bag & Natural Dyes Workshops explore:
- Native fibre identification and processing,
- Responsible harvesting,
- Wild foraging for natural dyes,
- Natural dying techniques specific to native weaving fibres,
- Traditional twining (dilly bag) and string making techniques.
All BARE Weaving 2 day workshops are held in gorgeous wilderness locations which directly inspire your creative process. Under the watchful eyes of your facilitators, Ingrid and Kate, you will be guided to create an amazing colourful basket by the end of the workshop.
We cater for all levels of experience with basketry. So if you are already experienced with coil, string or dilly bag weaving we’ll have a variety of technique extensions available to support your needs. Techniques such as earrings, necklaces, embellished string, lampshades, mats and hats.
As a group we will immerse ourselves in the natural landscape and learn to deeply connect through the ancient practice of weaving.
