Be inspired to develop and construct sculpture using basketry techniques. Mornings will be spent developing/refining skills; coiling, cord making, string bag making techniques, random weaving, twining and Neolithic Burkina weaving to equip you to take on significantly more advanced projects. Afternoons will be devoted to the construction of a sculpture of your choosing.
