Basket Weaving Workshop

Our basket weaving workshop is a hands-on learning experience where participants can explore and practice the traditional art of basket weaving. Basket weaving has been an integral part of many cultures around the world for centuries, serving both functional and artistic purposes.

During the workshop, participants can create their own baskets using the techniques they've learned. They learn how to select and prepare materials such as reeds, grasses, or other plant fibers commonly used in basket weaving. They are guided through the steps of weaving, shaping, and finishing their baskets.

Jewellery Making Workshop

Indigenous jewellery making refers to the art and craft of creating jewelry using traditional techniques and materials that are specific to indigenous cultures. Jewelry holds great cultural and symbolic significance in many indigenous communities, often reflecting their spiritual beliefs, social status, and cultural identity. The workshops often provide a space for cultural exchange and connection, allowing participants to engage with indigenous artisans or community members who are experts in jewellery making. They can learn directly from these artisans, observing their techniques, and practicing under their guidance.

Kokedama Workshop

A Kokedama workshop is a creative and hands-on session where participants learn the art of creating and caring for Kokedama, a traditional Japanese form of plant arrangement. Kokedama translates to "moss ball" in Japanese, and it involves wrapping plant roots in a ball of soil, moss, and string, creating a self-contained and visually appealing plant display. During the workshop, participants are guided through the step-by-step process of making their own Kokedama. They learn how to select suitable plants, prepare the soil mixture, wrap and shape the roots, and cover the ball with moss. They also learn different techniques for securing and decorating the Kokedama with string or twine.
