‘Cat’s Claw Basket Cases’
Cat's Claw Creeper might be an insidious introduced vine weed, increasingly prevalent along watercourses, but it also happens to be an excellent weaving material for making baskets.
The folks out on the Mary have been weaving with it since Master weaver Kris Martin helped them make the giant Mary River Turtle for the 2012 Mary River Festival and they haven't looked back.
Ian Mackay has conducted a number of workshops exclusively using Cat's Claw and just loves the way people take to basket weaving.
He'll supply the cat's claw, unless of course you have some of your own to harvest and weave in. Please bring along your secateurs.
These FREE events and workshops are open to everyone in the community, not just members and volunteers at the Gardens and there is no need to book a place.
