Weaving with Cane

I have taught this free-style, experimental 3D workshop at the Ipswich Art Gallery, Australia, over two days. I used 3mm cane as the base material and showed the participants how to construct a simple sphere using basket weaving techniques. Once they had created their own sample sphere I demonstrated how to construct more organic shapes and how to connect them to form a free-standing sculpture. As you can see the students came up with some fantastic creations. Some of these were even modified into lampshades using tissue-paper, PVA glue and diluted inks to add a bit of colour.
