Our “Let’s Explore Basketry Techniques” saw us all gathered around one very large table making for a most convivial time as we chatted and admired Josephine’s many visually seductive vessels and containers. And of course, we stitched.
Many, many thanks to Josephine for so generously showing us her techniques and for her cheerful and clear instruction. We all readily and enthusiastically chose to try creating our own. We are well underway with our ‘coiling and stitching’ using our own choices of fabric strips and threads in the colours we fancy – even golds – and look forward to the colourful end results.
It was great to see how the technique could be extended to trivets and coasters and even sculptural creations.
A most satisfying day!
