Join us for an evening of basket weaving and learn how to create your vessel using fair-trade rope, naturally dyed raffia, yarn, fabric & natural materials.

We will explore how to build different shapes, lids and how to incorporate fabric, leaves and other items using coiling, stitching, and twining.

You will get to take home your handmade coiled & twined vessel and lots of inspiration for other basket making techniques. 

Enjoy our relaxing, cosy studio and take time for you to be creative and mindful.

Your teacher:

Roz Slade is a Melbourne textile designer and maker interested in supporting society’s deep social connection to textiles and nurturing an interest in the therapeutic act of hand-making.

After graduating Textile Design and Development at RMIT, where she majored in weave and print-making, she stepped away from the ethical drift of fast fashion and textile waste, to create a modest range of high-quality products featuring sustainable methods and ethically sourced materials under the brand Be Kind Textiles.

Spending the following years exploring every craft within her reach in her own personal practice, she is sharing her results and a lifelong love of art and textiles with willing students.




We create a beautiful, warm atmosphere to make you feel at home in our cosy, plant filled studio. We encourage attendees to slow down, share stories and take the opportunity to connect with others in our community.

We are proud to support local artists, ethical businesses and community groups and we consider our impact on the earth it’s people in every aspect of our business. We are always learning and improving our processes. 

Extra info: All workshop topics available as a customised private workshop with a min of x10 at our studio or at a location of your choice. We also offer sustainable event management, catering - grazing tables, lighting & floristry. We cater for all diets - vegan, lactose & gluten free.

Ros’s Basketweaving workshop was great. Ros’s teaching style is calm and easy to follow, her ethical stance and material choices shone through and the space itself was pleasing to spend the time in.

What a beautiful, relaxed evening, - such interesting women, a delicious and spectacular grazing table, and of course the joy of learning a new skill! Sometimes short classes like this leave you with a half-finished project but I was absolutely thrilled with my cute little basket! I would recommend Put Your Heart Into It in a heartbeat and am already trying to decide what class to do next.
