WILD FIBRES BASKETRY
Wild Fibres Basketry was founded by Ainsley Warner, a fibre artist from Australia, currently based in Mexico.
Ainsley carefully creates unique and one off handwoven designs including baskets and jewellery. Her products are created using a wild and unusual range of fibres such as natural and hand dyed Madagascan raffia, recycled sari silk, banana silk and hemp twine from Nepal, wool blends, Japanese cotton gima, found ghost nets, printed textiles and any other fibres she comes across. Ainsley has also recently added a range of beaded earrings to her range that she creates using beautiful Japanese Miyuki glass beads.
Ainsley is currently living in Oaxaca, Mexico, where she continues to practice her art and jewellery making, as well as explore further the many techniques and processes of weaving, natural dyes and textiles. For those familiar with Oaxaca, you'll know that it is impossible to escape the endlessly inspiring layers of colour, culture and creativity. She is in heaven! Ainsley will start curating cultural arts experiences in Oaxaca in 2020, helping to bridge the gap between those of you interested in learning the deep traditional arts practices of Oaxaca, and the incredible local artisans who are willing to share their knowledge, skills and culture.
