Using a variety of grasses, vines and inflorescence for weaving, we will construct a traditional basket or perhaps something more sculptural, limited only by your imagination.
You will have the opportunity to make two small baskets, one using a twining technique, and and the other a random weave style. Or perhaps you would like to focus on a larger piece of one style only. The choice is yours.
We chat about different grasses, how to prepare for weaving and good places for foraging. Different techniques are discussed and also which style is suitable for specific fibres and grasses.
The safety of our visitors, artists, teachers, staff and volunteers is vital.
