Basketry Masterclass with Lissa de Sailles
Friday 02 August 2019
Is it time you left the day to day to reconnect with nature, took time out to be present and learn new creative skills ?
They bring you the wonderfully talented Lissa de Sailles, an internationally renowned modern and traditional fibre artist!
This one-day masterclass will take place in the grounds of the Bay and Bush Cottages, set in a beautifully tranquil, remote environment, in the middle of the bush in Woolamnia only minutes from Huskisson and a 2.5 hours drive from Sydney or Canberra.
You will start with a short bush walk. Lissa will help you notice the beautiful rich and varied plants suitable for weaving. They may even find materials to use for their projects or for a dye pot!
You will then come back indoors into a warm and cosy space complete fireplace! Lissa will demonstrate, teach you techniques and then assist you in putting these skills into practice to produce your own masterpieces independently.
You will break for a lovely relaxed lunch and then continue with artwork. Lissa will also incorporate some botanical dyeing techniques in your project too!
