String making is an ancient craft that is relevant in contemporary life as it allows us to slow down & experience the satisfaction of creating something hand made. Making natural products using plant materials takes us back to basics.
This 4 hour workshop is suitable for beginners, no previous experience is required & all materials are provided. You will make & take home 2 beautiful raffia string looped bags, using raw & naturally dyed Madagascan raffia, you will learn how to make string, and use it to make two different styles of looped string bags.
You will be supplied with approx 100g of raffia, printed handouts to refer to during and after the workshop, & details of where to purchase your own supplies for future projects.
You will need to bring your own lunch, a bottle of water & a travel mug (a selection of herbal teas will be provided).
The workshop will be held at The Coomba Aquatic Club, located in Coomba Park on the western shores of Wallis Lake,
on Sunday 21st March 2021 from 10:30am to 2:30pm
