Is it time you left the day to day to reconnect with nature, took time out to learn new creative skills and be present with a group of like-minded people? We are pleased to bring you the wonderfully talented Lissa de Sailles from Beyond Basketry, an internationally renowned basketry and fibre sculptor who splits her time between working in her studio in Nowra and exhibiting her work at Fern Street Gallery, Gerringong, when she isn’t overseas ! You will start the day with a short bush walk around the peaceful surroundings of the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum to help you ease yourself into the day. Lissa will introduce you to how to identify plants for making and weaving baskets, answer any questions you might have about what’s ahead and guide you into your projects. We may even find materials to use during the day! We will then return to our beautifully airy historical classroom where Lissa will demonstrate and teach age old basketry techniques such as looping, twining, and coiling and assist you to combine these skills into practice to produce a sample cache that will enable you to create your own masterpieces independently. You may choose to make a small basket or a wall piece on the day to display in your home as a lasting memento of this unique experience.
