More information on the basket workshops and free form baskets                 CLAY AND FIBRE I have always been interested in the Visual Arts and enjoyed working in clay and fibre. I started work in advertising at the age of seventeen and then went on to study two Diplomas at RMIT, one in Graphic Design and the other in Ceramics. I then went to Melbourne State College and completed a Diploma of Education. Two of the areas I studied which I enjoyed most were textiles and ceramics. Textiles included spinning, weaving, tie dye and batik. I am currently teaching Ceramics, Drawing and Visual Communication and Design at Eltham High School to levels 7-12. In 1986 I was awarded a teacher exchange to Pennsylvania USA for a year. It was here that I was introduced to basket weaving- Melon Baskets, Egg Baskets, Potato baskets, Heart shaped Baskets and many other designs.
