MAKING FABRIC BASKETS
Our online textile basket workshop shows you how to make your own baskets from fabric. It is a comprehensive online course suitable for all levels of basketry expertise. If you're even remotely crafty you'll have most of the materials you need at hand,
Using the coiling technique, we'll teach you how to use up spare fabrics and old clothes to upcycle into your own textile baskets - you'll soon be weaving basketry magic in no time!
Why do we upcyle fabric?
Here at Craft School Oz we try and be as sustainable as possible. That means using only sustainable materials, and recycling and upcycling where we can!
Using materials you have at hand in any craft project is the best way to craft. Australians alone send some 6000kg of textile waste to landfills every ten minutes. In the USA it's estimated that a further 21 billion pounds of textile waste goes to landfills every year!
