Contemporary Basketry is so much more than Weaving.

It’s about creating vessels that hold space, which can be achieved using a variety of sculptural mediums.

Fibre Weaving Course with Harriet Goodall

Harriet Goodall’s signature online course Form to Freedom – Weaving for Fibre Sculpture has been designed with this in mind.

Carefully developed as a deep dive into working with plants, fibres, dyeing and the basketry techniques Harriet uses to make her sculptural objects and woven lighting unique and original.

Harriet Goodall invites you into her private studio and promises to free your mind to the endless sculptural possibilities that ancient weaving techniques provide when combined with contemporary basketry. The same techniques and ethical practices she has used to sustain her professional art practice for over 14 years, making her one of Australia’s most loved fibre artists.

All course materials, including self-paced beautifully filmed streaming videos and comprehensive resource guides, are within an easy to use member portal and yours to access and revisit anytime.

Form to Freedom – Weaving For Fibre Sculpture is an investment in your creative education. It’s a worldwide community for enrolled students to come together in a private online forum and share your weaving adventures directly with Harriet, ask questions, bounce ideas, pass knowledge sideways and a resource for life!

Form A Holistic
Art Practice

About This Course

Weave At Your Own Pace

The problem with a live class is that you are limited by time, but in this online experience, you’re going to do the equivalent of half a dozen live workshops indulging in a holistic look at basket weaving techniques as a springboard into fibre sculpture.

It may take you many weeks or even years to try out all the things Harriet will share with you in this course. Some of them may make you buzz with ideas more than others but that’s the way a great artist is made, slowly and with practice.

By fully engaging with the course content you will try out different processes and become adept at incorporating a variety of materials into 3D fibre sculpture or learn to incorporate weaving into your mixed media 2D pieces with your own unique expression.

About Harriet Goodall

Harriet Goodall has dedicated her entire adult life in service to the preservation of culture through her pursuit of weaving.

She has witnessed first hand indigenous weavers in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, India, Australia and across southern Africa recognising the universality in coming together to dye and weave in villages and homes.

“I find the community that is created when weaving in a group is soul food and really beneficial to mental health – perhaps mimicking the ‘family model’ of making at home, so prevalent across many countries I have visited around the world.”

Harriet has run an independent art studio making sculpture, lighting and woven installations for private and commercial clients since 2007. She exhibits regularly and has passed on her passion for contemporary basket making techniques through popular workshops across Australia and around the world.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to share my passion and knowledge of weaving with a global audience, embracing the challenge of creating an online community of international weavers to connect with and also learn from.”
