ENROL ANYTIME and recieve a PRIVATE LINK to the video tutorial and #getyourweaveon at home!
At SNU, we acknowledge the spirits and ancestors of the lands and waters where we live, work and weave. We acknowledge and give thanks to the Quandamooka, Turrbal and Yuggera Peoples, the traditional owners and custodians of the country also known as the Redlands and Brisbane.
Learn how to weave a beautiful 4 cornered basket with a handle (see blue and yellow basket with yellow handle). We're going to get fancy and learn how to weave and add a handle (or 2) for your basket because we want that basket to be beautiful and WORK.
Using what ever materials you have at home or following the links below to buy some online or source from your garden, you can make this basket in the comfort of your home.
Once you've booked in, I'll send you the link to the PRIVATE online tutorial video. Be part of the weaving circle, or 'weave jam' as I like to call it because just like a music jam, magic happens when you're in THAT zone.
These weaving projects are perfect for teachers, parents, creatives and anyone who wants to get their weave on and learn a little bit about my love for Samoan and Pasifika culture.
- A TUTORIAL ONLINE. A private link will be sent to your email once you've enrolled.
- Source your own materials from home or buy some online. I bought my packing tape from ABL Disptribution. Try Bunnings or other places.
- Can't make the live tutorial? Students have access to recordings. Replay tutorials in your own time and weave from anywhere.
- 26 x 1m lengths (use plastic straps, paper, lomandra leaves etc) Each length should be the same width. I'll be using 1.5cm wide strips of plastic. 24 strands will be used to make the basket. Set 2 aside to make the handle.
- 8 pegs
