There will be discussion and detailed observation of samples of different materials, techniques and forms of basketry. Following verbal explanation and demonstration by the tutor, students will be encouraged and supported in designing and making their own functional, decorative or sculptural forms. This will involve: the selection, preparation and calculation of different materials (including dyeing material using chemical dyes when appropriate), making different bases or starts, learning different weaves to create form, pattern or texture, applying functional or decorative features such as handles or lashings and applying finishing techniques such as borders or lids. Students will be expected to work together sharing ideas, tasks and information.
