Weaving Mediums Together

When artist Caroleena Bingham (@caroleenabingham) recently returned home to her native Fiji she challenged herself to learn traditional basket weaving.

Check out this series of images where Caroleena learns how to weave a vesavesa. Upon returning to Frank O’Cain’s evening class here at the League she began creating paintings based on the experience.⁠

As you can see they are rich in the colors and design of the vesavesa and the Fiji islands. She plans to learn how to create more traditional Fijian crafts in the coming months. We’re looking forward to seeing how it informs her painting practice!⁠
