Patterned shirts go out of fashion so quickly that they tend to crowd the hanging spaces in our wardrobes and op shops. In this workshop, you are invited to use them to make complex colouration when creating a small but functional basket.
We will start by making string with fabric lengths, which will then be used to make the coiled basket using raffia with a buttonhole stitch.
String making and coiling are both techniques you can achieve at home once you learn the basics. String making, in particular, is such a relaxing thing to do at the end of the day and resulting cordage can be used for a myriad of things around the house and garden, such as tying a tomato plant to a stake.
