Introduction to basketry – Making a basket pouch

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: (6) Level: Intermediate Category: ,

Would you like to learn basketry? The craft of making objects by weaving or intertwining materials is not only enjoyable, but in the end, you’ll have something practical too!

Fabienne Clément, basketry craftswoman, will accompany us in the making of a pretty pouch, with a cotton strap, ideal for picking herbs, small fruits, mushrooms, or as an interior decoration depending on the season!

Perfect as an introduction to basketry, this 3-hour workshop will be an opportunity to discover the different techniques of weaving and tightening rattan. You will learn how to finger weave, continuously, from a closed braided base and insert a cotton braid in your choice of color.

Dimensions : 18 x 5 x 18 cm

The price includes all the necessary materials and tools, plus Fabienne’s expert advice!

NB: the workshop time is indicative, and it may take longer for some participants. We, therefore, recommend that you do not schedule an appointment right after!

La gentillesse de la professeure et de la personne à l’accueil, le petit groupe, de pouvoir repartir avec ce que j’ai créé, d’apprendre étape par étape une nouvelle pratique artisanale. J’ai adoré !
