String Bag & Cord Making Workshop

with SHAC resident weaver extraordinaire, Brooke Munro

String Bag & Cord Making Workshop

Spend the day learning an introduction to the art of cord making, knotless netting and bag making with SHAC resident Brooke Munro in her studio at the SHAC.

Firstly you will learn to make cord using foraged and prepared plant fibres. This cord can also be made using remnant and dyed fibres for additional interest and design. From the prepared cord you will create a bag using knotless netting techniques such as looping, figure of eight, twisted and round stitches.

Brooke will be demonstrating these varied techniques and will be hands on when teaching the differing netting styles.

This class will run for 5hrs and includes tea & coffee as well as a light grazing style lunch.

All materials and tools will be supplied for this class.
