MASTER weaver Catriona Pollard will host sculptural basket weaving workshops at Camden Haven's Pilot Station in September.
Join this fun filled all day workshop and learn the random weave basketry technique using the wonderful Bangalow palm inflorescence which is abundant in the Port Macquarie area.
The workshop is all about exploration and play - not perfection.
The class is suitable for beginners, or intermediate weavers and for those who think they have little or no creativity or want to explore that quality more.
Depending on numbers, the classes will be held on September 20, 26 or 27 between 10am and 3.30pm.
To cost and to book go toTheArtofWeaving.com.au.
As a practicing basketry artist and teacher, Catriona's unique sculptural work offers glimpses of shape-shifting natural forms, from unnoticed branches, leaves and seedpods into stunning works that celebrate the abundance of nature.
She uses foraged and discarded plant material with traditional basketry and assemblage techniques to reimagine nature. Her art is about truly seeing the extraordinary in everyday moments. Simply, it's about being still, and letting the beauty surface.
She has had several solo exhibitions and exhibited extensively in selected and group exhibitions. She's been finalist in many art awards including Emerging Artist of the Year Craft NSW, Ravenswood Women's Art Prize, Northern Beaches Art Prize, North Sydney Art Prize, Warringah Art Prize, and Mosman Art Gallery.
She teaches sold out workshops in her studio in Sydney, week long residentials at art schools and also internationally.
Her artwork is profiled across major art and design media and is featured nationally in galleries, high end design spaces and private collections.
