Learn to make baskets from the gardenWe are SUPER EXCITED about this workshop. Spend five beautifully creative hours in the company of like-minded people on the Ministry of Handmade treetop deck…. learn the ancient art of basket coiling plants from your garden. Learn how to harvest, dry and store plants so they can be used in this process. Become inspired by what’s out there and you’ll never look at plants the same way.
And . . . you will go home with your own unique basket.

Ruth is now a favourite visiting facilitator at Ministry of Handmade having taught basket coiling here over the last two years. Ruth has lived in South East Asia and Arnhem Land and incorporates into her sessions the skills she learned working with women there.
