TEXTILE BASKETRY at the Chelsea Physic Garden
June 8th 2016

TEXTILE BASKETRY – Woven pod forms inspired by the Garden

Join Mary for a one-day course exploring seed and pods forms, inspired by a visit to the Garden, with a focus on the Banskia seed and Cocoa pod. Mary will teach the technique of twining to enable the making of a small textured woven pod. Twining involves the weaving of two threads using the fingertips, whilst the form is held in the hands. Processes covered will include joining of threads, patterning and developing a form. Each pod will incorporate some natural fibres such as hemp, nettle or linen and makers will be encouraged to think about their use of colour and texture. This will result in each pod having its own unique qualities. At the end of the day it is anticipated that each maker will have at least one completed pod and will have learnt some basic textile basketry skills.
