spring basket weaving

A few weeks ago we kicked off the first in a series of three Spring basket weaving with textiles workshops at The Craft Nest. The first one was exposed core buttonhole (or blanket) stitch and the results were really lovely.

Can't wait to see Michelle's completed water bottler carrier!

Great company, great food and a really beautiful session of slow crafting. I'm really looking forward to getting together and unwinding at the next one.

For the next session we'll be doing lazy squaw stitch, there are a couple of spots left:

Hope to see you then!

Beautiful blog and basketry, especially the last one. I'm wondering if you can tell me where you sourced your fibre rush from? I'm in Adelaide and haven't been able to find any locally. I usually use rushes and reeds but for the purpose a workshop I'm running. Thanks - Ellie
