Creative Basketry through the Ages
Wednesday 12 November & Thursday 13 November 2014
This two-day course will begin with a short illustrated talk by Imogen Gunn, the Collections Manager for Archaeology at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, here in Cambridge. After examining images and exhibits from the Museum at close quarters with participants, Mary will teach a range of off-loom weaving techniques, drawing on the rich evidence of exhibits and research in this field.
The course will allow beginners and more advanced students of both basketry and textiles to create structures using an exciting variety of leaves from the Garden. Inspired by the history of basketry and weaving, students will be encouraged to experiment. Finished work might include small bags, bowls, mobile structures or abstract wall hangings.
