Twined basketry course

By Kim Winter
Morley College London - Waterloo Centre for Adult Education, Westminster Bridge Road, London, UK

Twined basketry uses soft materials – two active weavers are woven around vertical warps, or stakes.

Over seven evenings tutor Kim Winter will introduce you to a wide range of twining materials, from natural cordage and vines to wire and baler twine. Weaving can be close, which produces a strong, durable basket, or more open, which results in a more open, flexible construction. You can also create pattern by changing colour.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Use different starting methods to make a twined basket
  • Use both open and close twining to create different effects
  • Create patterns by changing colours
  • Produce a series of samples or finished works in different materials

Through inspiring samples and presentations you will also learn how twining is used around the world and in contemporary craft. Suitable for complete beginners. For more information and to book see https://www.morleycollege.ac.uk/courses/course/creative-basketry-twining/
