18 Exploring basketry & its fundamentals with Jillian Culey

Learn the ancient arts of twined and ribbed basket weaving as well as string making using a range of plant materials. By creating small sample baskets or bags in each of the techniques, students will explore different fibres, textures, techniques and shapes. Over the week there will be an opportunity to extend these skills into a larger bag, basket, wall hanging or sculptural piece. 
Jillian Culey is a fibre artist who is inspired by the natural fibres she uses and by the ancient and universal craft of basket weaving. Her work explores the woven form; its delicacy and its strength, its simplicity and its complexity. Jillian designs and creates baskets and sculptural pieces for exhibition, retail stores and private collections.
