A Journey in Sculptural Twining with Lissa – Jane de Sailes

Course Overview

Join Lissa in a fun and hands on two day workshop where you will learn all about twined basketry and sculptural forms and how to work with both man made and

natural plant fibre. We begin by exploring the ways that this

ancient craft has been used globally over millennia from

simple basket forms to complex regalia and contemporary


Lissa will guide beginners and improvers through a series of

techniques where you will feel comfortable to progress on your

own to make basket forms and sculptural work. All you need are dexterous hands and imagination.

Material fee $40 payable to Lissa
