Coiling with natural materials / Nicole Robins

String play – coiled pendant workshop with Basketry NSW

Basketry NSW members Sally Blackwell and Nicole Robins will provide a free hands-on workshop teaching both string making and coiling techniques. We will use both upcycled materials and natural fibres. Feel free to bring any fabric or string remnants you may like to use. Our weaving circle will be held in North Sydney on Saturday 19 October 10am – 1pm, alongside the Northside Produce market – with over 70 stallholders bringing the best fresh produce, exceptional artisanal goods and providing delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch.

The event will be held in Civic Park although there will be a wet weather venue in North Sydney Community Centre should the need arise. Thanks to North Sydney Council, North Sydney Community Centre and the Northside Produce Market for their support.

Details: Saturday 19 October 10am – 1pm; Workshop not suitable for U12 because of needle use.
