    This is an awesome basic beginner basket technique to spark and begin your own weaving journey... Using a base of cane we will add natural fibres from my garden and yours to create our very own basket...

    This is a great opportunity to center yourself... refocus... relax... connect with new people... while being creative and inspired in a natural environment...

    I would love to share with you an easy weaving technique and simple ways to identify fibres from your garden and nature to utilize when creating your own unique baskets... This workshop is designed to inspire your creative energy and the beginning of your own weaving adventures.

    Fibres such as Infloresence, Lomandra, Monsteria, Ponytail Palm, Monkey Vine and Banana are just a few of the suitable & abundant fibres available on the mountain and coastal area... They are simple to prepare, store, grow in your garden and some in pots even!... We will prepare banana fibres on the day and discuss storage possibilities and growing your own weaving supplies...

    Includes all materials and morning tea...

    Please bring a cushion for comfort, wear old clothes or an apron (as banana can stain, small segment of the day) and a yummy plate for a shared lunch... a smile and giggles are essential... This workshop will be held outdoors on Tamborine Mountain and it can be a little cooler up here than on the coast, so come prepared so that you are comfortable...

    I hope you can make it... Looking forward to weaving with you... Cindy...

How It Works!
Who We Are

Logo Experience Tamborine Mountain

What is Experience Tamborine Mountain all about?

Experience Tamborine Mountain is an eclectic collection of like-minded businesses that share a passion for the cool, sub-tropical rainforest paradise that lies near Queensland’s capital, Brisbane and behind the Gold Coast.

Using our specialist local knowledge and connections, we’ve carefully curated a varied menu of activities and experiences that will appeal to visitors’ diversity, tastes and aspirations. And, because one size does not necessarily fit all, we recognise the importance of also crafting tailored experiences for special interest individuals or groups.

The best takeaway from travelling is the stories you’ll have and the abiding memories of simple pleasures, of unplanned serendipitous moments, encounters with locals, and even life-altering learning.  We believe in the importance of sharing the little things with our visitors as well as the big ticket moments and look forward to helping you discover them so you’ll have your own stories to tell.

Tamborine Mountain – what to do and where to stay?

Mountain destinations translate to achingly beautiful scenery and views, crisp, clean air, a plethora of local wildlife and pristine forest, and Tamborine Mountain is no exception. Against this glorious backdrop exists a diverse and colourful cottage industry with numerous local artists and craftspeople, a variety of natural and man-made attractions, award-winning wineries, a vibrant cafe and restaurant scene, soft adventure for the thrill-seekers, festivals, special events and country markets.

These are all supported by a host of accommodation options including generous country homes that suit extended family or corporate groups, warm and welcoming B & Bs and intimate couples’ cottages.

What can Experience Tamborine Mountain offer you?

To truly experience and participate in the essence of this special place can be intimate, personal, challenging, exhilarating and even life-affirming. We can show you the main spots to take the pretty pictures, but more importantly, we can help you explore our back streets where you will create a personal connection with our mountain that will continue to touch you long after you leave.

Sometimes the simplest moments during a trip away can provide the greatest memories and experiences – it could be the taste of a new dish, lovingly prepared by a passionate champion of  regional produce; an encounter with a knowledgeable, generous winemaker who loves to share a yarn ; laughing with family as you play a board game at a sprawling farmhouse dining table; the sound of birdsong as you light a fire before breakfast; or simply slowing down and being in the moment, exploring the beauty of an ancient rainforest.

Explore our ‘Experience’ packages

Get to know our mountain by connecting to our history, our culture and our people – authentic experiences, uncontrived, sometimes simple, sometimes adrenalin-inducing; something literally for everyone. We have created these experiences for you, so you can now go and live them.
