Raffia Bottle Kit & Online Course 2 EARTHY

This kit includes everything you need to start creating raffia covered bottles, using the blanket stitch technique.

The Raffia Bottle Kit & Online Course No. 2 includes:

• Access to the Online Course “How to Make a Raffia Basket No. 2” by Craft School Oz
• 3 x 50g bundles of raffia from The Raffia Connection or Nutscene (enough raffia for 3 small to medium sized bottles)
• 1 x Chenille needle
• 1 x glass bottle 12cm high x 5cm base diameter. You can also recycle your own glass bottles or find them in your local op shop or thrift store.

The Online Course titled “How to Make a Raffia Basket No. 2" (Advanced) contains more advanced skills for creating coiled baskets and bags using raffia. You can return to the course as often as you like. Covering new techniques and exploring creative ideas, the course includes:

• Oval baskets
• Shaping around a form, including bottles and a container
• Creating coloured patterns
• The cutest rectangular bag
• How to make cord / string
• And some more handles and straps to incorporate into your work

It is recommended that you complete How to Make a Raffia Basket No. 1 (an introduction to making coiled baskets) before enrolling in this more advanced course. You will be able to combine what you learn from both courses to create your own unique pieces.
The bottle kit is pictured here with our hand-dyed raffia in the colours Eggplant, Burnt Umber and Alfalfa, but you can choose your own colours from our huge range of over 40 raffia colours. Just use the Notes section when ordering to let us know the names of your preferred raffia colours (maximum of 3 x 50g bundles). If no preference is stated, the raffia colours in the photo will be provided.
