Exploring Soft Sculptural and Line Using Wrapping

Exploring Soft Sculptural and Line Using Wrapping

Saturday 24th June 2023

In this workshop you will focus on wrapping with connections to coiling.

Wrapping and coiling of a core material is worked in the hands with the use of a few simple tools. Working around a core the wrapping adds structure, colour and possibly texture

You will be introduced to the technique, and encouraged to explore soft sculpture and line.

Techniques will be taught to start, join in new threads, connect cores whilst wrapping and finishing off.

A range of materials will be available to trial as a core including rope, string raffia, fabric and paper. Wrapping threads on offer will be colourful, natural or textured; wools, fabric, strings and twine.

I am teaching this workshop for one day with Oxfordshire Basketmakers (OB) in Old Marston, Oxfordshire.

If you are interested in attending, bookings  can be made directly through OB.

Further details can be found on the Oxfordshire Basketmakers website.
