Do natural materials like flax and willow inspire you to create? Let Jodie show you how to use your imagination and pictures to construct wonderful native animals from the bush.
Create a bird with a simple framework of wire and slowly ‘flesh out’ surfaces using the basketry technique known as interlacing or random weaving. Tools and materials provided by Jodie.
Participants are asked to bring: BYO gloves.
