Form to Freedom provides the perfect balance of structure and flexibility, enabling artists to absorb and become proficient in a variety of sculptural basketry techniques on a calendar that fits their busy schedules.

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 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. She has used the same techniques and ethical practices to sustain her professional art practice for over 15 years, making her one of Australia’s most loved fibre artists. 

Weave At Your Own Pace

The problem with a live class is that you are limited by time, but in this online experience, you will 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 how 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 various materials into 3D fibre sculpture or learn to integrate weaving into your mixed media 2D pieces with your own unique expression.

Enrol now, gather your supplies and start engaging with Harriet on the 22nd of July 2024 for a full two months of additional guidance and weaving support.

Develop the skills to create a piece of art in whatever form you want.

 

See a colour you like, find a shape that inspires you, pick up a found object, and know exactly how to transform your inspiration into artwork!

Ideal for creatives eager to learn about the materials you can explore, and some easy techniques, including making cordage, random weaving, knotless netting/looping, coiling, open paired twining and dyeing plant materials.

 

1-5-50x50.png

I started out with minimal knowledge of basketry, plants and foraging – and no idea where the course would lead me. Three months on, I’m in love with looping, twining and coiling; I’m surrounded by yards of cordage, bunches of leaves and grasses; I’ve moved into a little studio space. I’ve gained the knowledge to bring natural materials into my practice and learnt techniques to create sculptural forms. Every walk presents new inspiration and I see shapes and forms all around me that I didn’t see before. My weaving is now off the loom and off the wall.

Here is what you can expect from Form to Freedom

Learn from 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 indigenous weavers firsthand in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, India, Australia, and across southern Africa, recognising the universality of people 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.”

Since 2007, Harriet has run an independent art studio, making sculpture, lighting, and woven installations for private and commercial clients. 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.”

Form a Holistic Art Practice

From harvesting in your environment, purchasing, preparing and storing materials, dyeing plant fibres and creating studio space to the business of fibre art and selling in galleries, you’ll gain an in-depth education in not only the fibre art aspects of basketry but the history and community culture that weaving brings with it.

This is not a straightforward craft class. It is a comprehensive online resource that will open your mind to the endless sculptural possibilities that ancient weaving techniques provide when combined with contemporary basketry.

1-5-50x50.png

Harriet’s online course was fantastic, more than I expected.  Packed full of advice, encouragement, imagination and information for every participant.  Delivery of the course had the perfect balance of honesty, humour and intimacy into the life of this creative artist.  I feel blessed to have participated in this adventure.  I would strongly recommend anyone wanting to develop their skills in this area to do this course.

Harriet will guide you through the following modules sharing her wisdom along the way

M1_Cordage_Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-600x400

MODULE 1: MAKING AN AMULET

We start by acknowledging First Nations people as the traditional knowledge keepers. Harriet will teach you to make cordage, an ancient basketry fundamental, which you can then use to create a personal amulet or talisman to bring you good luck while taking the class. This simple skill will keep your hands busy whilst you enjoy listening to Harriet guide you through other modules or during TV shows, car journeys, train and even plane trips.
Harvesting_Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-600x400.jpg

MODULE 2: HARVESTING PLANTS FOR WEAVING

The wonderful thing about basket making is that you don’t need a lot of expensive equipment to get started. Take a walk in nature with Harriet to learn about the ethics of harvesting and collecting plant materials from your garden, bush, or surrounding streetscape and how to prepare, dry, and store those materials to make them suitable for weaving. A comprehensive guide to purchasing materials with a supplier list is also included.

Random_Weaving_Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-2-600x400.jpg

MODULE 3: PODS, NESTS AND COCOONS

Now you know what plant materials are suitable for weaving and how to prepare them, it’s time to get weaving! Finding inspiration from nature, using the popular technique of random weaving, Harriet will walk you through two different sculptural forms. Teaching you the fundamental techniques of random or free-form weaving so you can create woven sculptures that will hold their form in whatever shape you want!
Looping_Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-600x400_jpg

MODULE 4: IN THE LOOP

Knotless netting or looping is used by contemporary artists worldwide to create lace-like weaving and is one of Harriet’s favourite techniques to use in her fibre sculpture and lighting. In this module, Harriet will teach you three different looping stitches using waxed linen and hemp so you can get excited by creating contrast through the opacity and transparency this technique provides.
Module-Sculpture_1.2.1-600x400.jpg

MODULE 5: LOOPING FOR SCULPTURE

If you’re looking to get more intentional and sculptural with your new looping skills, then this module is for you! You’re now going to loosen up and have fun with different looping techniques as Harriet shares how to use them in sculptural ways incorporating sticks and stones, vines and copper wire. You’ll learn various ways to create contrasting patterns and textures, cover objects completely and even mimic nature with random looping techniques.
Coiling-Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-600x400.jpg

MODULE 6: COILING WITH PLANTS AND CLAY

It’s time to start mixing your media. In this module, Harriet will show you how you can use the traditional basketry technique known as coiling to use purchased or leafy materials from the garden and mix them with ceramics – Think of it as a collaboration between coiling and clay!  Starting with a traditional basket weavers buttonhole stitch taught to Harriet by Indigenous Australian women she has worked with before moving on to a spiral and V stitch. You’ll learn how to start and finish a basket and to coil onto the clay. 
Module-7.2-600x400.jpg

MODULE 7: OPEN PAIRED TWINING

It’s time to free yourself further, working with soft and hard fibres and enjoying the sculptural opportunities that open-paired twining can provide. This is Harriet’s go-to technique for her bespoke lighting and one of her most popular live workshops. Developed on a trip to Vietnam, Harriet will walk you through the steps to create a beautiful open fish trap style basket before stepping you through the more traditional stake and strand technique starting from the bottom up using soft fibres. You’re going to love this module!
Dyeing_Plant_Fibres_Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-600x400.jpg

MODULE 8: DYEING PLANT FIBRES

So you have bought and harvested some materials, and naturally, you’re looking for some variety in the colours you can work with. However, dye on plant fibres can be fugitive. In this module, Harriet will show you ways to enhance your weaving materials using powdered colour and the various natural dyes she has discovered work best for plant materials. She’ll even share her secret mordant discovery that, when combined with a rusty vinegaroon recipe, will instantly transform the colour of your plant materials like magic!
Sculpture_Harriet_Goodall_Fibre_Arts_Take_Two_Meet_Your_Tutor-600x400

MODULE 9: SCULPTURAL MEDIUMS

It’s time to combine your new basketry skills and create a random woven pod-shaped vessel to hold space with a wire basket armature. You’ll discover a way to rust dye your fabric, further enhance your sculptures with embroidery and stitch, and discover different surface treatments to harden and preserve your work to create contemporary wall hangings and 3D sculptures. 

The possibilities are endless!

What's Included?

 

Over 9 modules, 3 exclusive bonuses, and over 12 hours of footage, Harriet covers an equivalent of 6 live classes, including her most requested workshops – Open Weave Fish Trap Style Basket and Random Weaving.

Together with Harriet, you’ll be learning what materials you can explore, and starting with baby steps, learn some easy techniques, including making cordage, random weaving, knotless netting/looping, coiling, open paired twining and dyeing plant materials.

Throughout each module, you’ll discover how to intermesh techniques with found and handmade objects to create art. 

Keep scrolling for a detailed description of each module, and watch the video below.

 

3 Exclusive BONUSES

When Harriet began weaving, one of her biggest frustrations was how outdated and limited weaving resources were. It took her years to figure out what she needed to learn by herself. If she had had a course like this when she had started, she would have saved herself from having to seek out teachers and travel to expensive and faraway workshops. It would have saved her years and years of learning, seeking, and searching.

It's this very experience that has led her to create a unique weaving resource for you. Weaving is a practice that gives back, and Harriet is eager to share as much as she can with you. As a special bonus, she's included exclusive materials you won't find anywhere else, enhancing your learning journey.

The opportunity to forage for materials for your weaving art!

Going out into nature, collecting materials, and making something from things you've found is one of the best feelings you can have. 

From Harriet Goodall's perspective, making fibre sculpture is the ultimate act of environmentalism because you're foraging things from the environment around you that will eventually break down again. You are leaving an incredibly light footprint. 

“I feel like I am doing something worthwhile, ethical, environmentally friendly and culturally rich.” 

It’s incredible that all you need is a pair of cutters and a bucket of water and with a bit of knowledge and understanding of the basic rules of what will work and what won't, you can effectively create artworks using things that you find.

“The trips I make foraging are some of my happiest moments. I feel like I’m on a treasure hunt.” Harriet tells us.

And you’ll discover the happiness that weaving brings people around the world!

Harriet has been invited around the world to lead weaving retreats and it was after this she was struck by the similarities between her classes and the weaving communities she encountered in small villages.

Whether in the Australian desert, the Vietnamese highlands, the tropics of Indonesia, The Peruvian Andes or ancient cities in Japan; Harriet noticed that when people came together to weave they seemed happy and relaxed.

Groups of people weaving led to busy chatter, children running in and out, dogs barking and laughter. People would also help each other and share learning around the circle.

Harriet began to realise that for her, weaving brings together many of the ingredients of happiness, including presence, purpose, pace, perspective, passion and play.

1-5-50x50.png

I commenced ‘Form to Freedom’ with no prior weaving experience and yet with each new skill it felt like rediscovery, as if my hands already knew what to do and just needed to be reminded.

Harriet makes the impossible seem possible. Her gentle guidance, clear instructions and delightful sense of humour make the journey such a joy and I am so grateful. To have access to the content, forever, is a precious gift; money very well spent.

What Harriet's Students Are Saying

This course has opened up a whole new world to me; it is the most enjoyable course I’ve ever taken! Harriett has given me the techniques and tools to create fiber art in an incredibly joyful atmosphere. Thank you for sharing yourself and your expertise, Harriett!

It is the best course I’ve ever taken for any subject, hands down! The subject matter, the filming in a beautiful environment, and Harriett as a teacher, in addition to being online and available to replay, make it an easy choice if you have a desire and interest in this field.

SusannaBLong_01

Form to Freedom has helped me to understand what is unique to me and my background and how I can convey this through art. I had often wondered how to create pieces with meaning rather than simply creating something nice to look at. I’m much clearer about this now.

I’d highly recommend the course to anyone interested in fibre arts, particularly if you want to learn ancient techniques to use in a contemporary setting.

Kim Lane01

I have often suspected I was an artist, but I never truly felt like one until now. The course has given me the confidence to express my connection to nature, my love of visual beauty, and my voice. What a gift to be able to share the passions of your heart.

Take this course for yourself so that you can grow, express who you are to the world, and form connections with like-minded people.

suzanne_martin_03.jpeg

I have been a porcelain sculpture artist for many years. Last year I packed away my clay studio in search of a more sustainable way of expression. I had been searching for techniques that would help me utilize post-consumer waste and marine debris in sculpture. Harriet’s course was perfect. I found that random weave, twinning and cordage are my favorite techniques to utilize these materials. This course has been so inspiring, and I feel confident to move forward in my new creative direction.

Licia McDonald

The Form To Freedom experience for me was everything that I had waited for!

I feel that the course has really made my artistic practice take off in fresh new directions.

Form to Freedom introduced me to many new techniques and different ways of expressing what I want to say as an artist. The course has developed my practice, making me believe in my abilities more and has given me the confidence to pursue my desire to be a Fibre Artist. By experimenting with all the techniques, I have found those that I like and those that I might only dip into occasionally. This has helped to give me a personal direction. I also have had my eyes opened to all the natural fibres waiting for me in my immediate environment.

Shone Judge 5

I think mostly the course has given me the confidence to use my voice and to experiment and play.
I think I had the language but I'd got stuck. Stuck with trying to use someone else's language instead of my own. I think I have truly become my creative self now. I'm filled with joy because this course enabled that.

Amanda_Pattenden_01

Form to Freedom played a pivotal role in unveiling my visual language by providing a structured yet liberating approach to artistic expression.
The course empowered me to explore diverse forms and techniques, encouraging experimentation and pushing boundaries.
I highly recommend this course! It offers a perfect blend of structure and creative freedom, providing diverse techniques to explore. Harriet's generosity in sharing knowledge makes it a truly enriching experience.

iaki_Vallejo

I've really enjoyed the whole Form to Freedom learning experience. I never thought an online course could replace an on-site workshop. I can now say it has been so much more rewarding.
Harriet is such an amazing tutor who is so generous at sharing her skills, knowledge and humour.

Wendy Roberts 11

This course has broadened my view on fundamental and age-old techniques, and it has given me a better understanding of how and why I want to make something.

Thanks to the focus on learning and practice, it is suitable for anyone with an interest in basket weaving. It opens up countless possibilities and ideas to explore.

MetavanderKnijff-biggerthanus-creatingspace

What a joyous journey of discovery the Form to Freedom course started!
It gave me the tools and courage to move from utilitarian objects to a free-er expressive approach.
Thank you, Harriet for sharing your skills so generously and passing on your knowledge, developed and shared by weavers across time and place. It is a great way to learn and explore in such an inclusive and supportive environment.

Mariannepeyertrio

Form to Freedom gave me exactly what I needed to level up my skills and build confidence in my chosen visual language, and I am deeply grateful.

sandra_vander_schaaf_01

I love the course! Harriet, with her amazing teachings, is full of experience and professionalism, but most of all, teaching us so much beauty in her relationship with the materials she works with, and this gave my personal experience an ocean of possibilities. Lighted a glimpse to my own infinite creativity. It was a gift of life that I found Form to Freedom. Thank you, Harriet.

Perhaps you have childhood memories of basket weaving, or like me, have admired weavers on your travels and collected baskets or a have another craft you are passionate about and want to expand your repertoire —whatever brings you here, embrace it with joy and curiosity.

Take your time to explore materials, textures, and colours that resonate with you. This process of discovery is where creativity thrives. By joining this community, you've already taken a courageous step forward. Like stepping onto a yoga mat, or pulling on your walking shoes, the hardest part is behind you. Now, you have resources for a lifelong journey of learning and growth.

Form to Freedom invites you to reconnect with basics and embrace a slower pace. Begin by exploring your surroundings, gathering fibres from nature, and discovering their unique qualities. Engage with our supportive Facebook community through creating a personal amulet—a visual expression of what inspires you.

As you delve into the modules, follow your passions and explore different techniques at your own rhythm. There are no rules or deadlines here—just the freedom to experiment, learn, and sometimes, grow through setbacks. Some things may seem “not for me” but down the track a revisit may uncover new loves. This journey is about discovering unexpected joys and overcoming challenges that once seemed daunting.

Know that you're not alone on this path. Myself, our amazing team and passionate alumni are here to guide and encourage you through technical and artistic decisions. Take your time, stay curious, and above all, let your creativity shine in your own unique way.

Yours in creative spirit,
