Basketry workshop great success!

The Basketry workshop with Mackay Textile Artist Wannda Bennett was a huge success today! Seven eager students were taught the basic techniques of basketry...creating some wonderful pieces which they were able to take home!

Wanda, a wonderful teacher and a very talented artist, has ignited a new found passion for the art of contemporary basketry ....a very big thank you to her for travelling down to us and teaching us these new skills....a very enjoyable day...and we are all eager to continue with this new skill.
