Weaving workshop with Fiona Gavino
Basketry has an extraordinarily rich heritage from around the world, and in this workshop you'll have the opportunity to try your hand at weaving your very own basket with renowned artist Fiona Gavino.
Learn the foundational techniques of cane basketry and learn to weave a small round basket out of 3mm cane using the technique of tabby weaving. This hands on workshop is for those with no experience or any experience with basket weaving, and all materials are supplied.
Fiona Gavino, of Australian, Filipino, and Māori heritage, has been described as an intercultural artist working the traditional into the contemporary. Her work has toured nationally and internationally, and as an artist she pushes the boundaries of what basketry can physically do and say, permitting her the capacity to create a broader conversation across class and cultures.
