Basket making from nature
Pauline Chant was taught by her mother and she made her first basket when she was nine years old. Her work today is the very embodiment of sustainability. Most of Pauline's weaving material is sourced from her own property or local area and sometimes she calls on other gardeners to part with their prunings for her basket making. In recent years Pauline has dabbled in other mediums for her work, including paper, clay, kelp, bark, fabric, wire and plastics and recently has found that using permaculture plants such as vetiver and lemon grass is another new avenue to pursue for her baskets and papermaking.

Pauline will be holding a free two hour workshop at the Yandina Community gardens on the 19th of April at 9.30 am.
