Basket Making and Weaving

Aly de Groot

Tuesday 1 March 2016

Aly's inter-disciplinary practice involves the creation of woven sculpture, objects, installation and wearables which are often ‘witty, gawky and elegant at once’ (Ooms, Australian Art Collector, 2005).

As a recipient of a Charles Darwin University Post Graduate Research Scholarship, her PhD question, Underwater Basket Weaving, explores issues surrounding basketry and ecology.

Her Underwater Basket Weaving studio series form a collection of artworks experimenting with marine debris combined with contemporary basket making techniques to make woven sculpture and installation
