Stick Baskets

with Gwen Egg

Weave a rustic platter to serve your picnic fare.

Tuesday 20th October

6.30 - 9pm

$54 / $40

It's a good time to weave with the sticks from garden pruning.  This ingenious basket weaving technique allows us to use sturdy materials which might otherwise be too tough to tackle.  Gather some fresh sticks as you spruce up your garden in Spring.


  • You'll make a sturdy stick basket to take home

  • Photocopied instructions to help you remember the process 

  • Learn when and how to collect ​suitable materials to continue weaving at home


  • All materials and equipment will be supplied

  • bring a bundle of fresh sticks or prunings from your garden if you can

  • A camera or smartphone to take photos to remind you of key steps, and of course your trusty notebook and pen


Please book via the ticketing system below so that we know you are coming.



Gwen Egg is a fibre artist who is best known for teaching basket weaving with natural materials.


Gwen is interested in the ecologies and cultures that inform the materials and techniques used in the weaving. She enjoys the process of making which stimulates her thinking - as do the people she meets through her involvement in community arts and teaching.
