ASTRL Fibres Making Space: Coiled Basket Workshop

Featured Image


Making Space is a series of workshops that will encourage you to think with your hands, embrace a willingness to play, allow yourself the space to be creative and find connection in the act of making.

About this workshop: Join Alison of ASTRL Fibres and learn how to handcraft a beautiful coiled basket to take home with you. Over the course of this 2.5hr session, Alison will guide you through a beginners coiling and stitching technique using recycled cotton cord in a variety of colour options.

(After booking Alison will email you to discuss your desired colour preference, please ensure you include your email address at checkout)

Who is this workshop for: This workshop is suitable for those looking to try a new handcraft and no previous experience is required.
