Weaving Wild – Autumn

Focus on grasses and leaves

Two Day Course – Cost – £160   Deposit £80

Saturday 16th – Sunday 17th September 2023

Grasses and leaves which have finished their growth for the year can be dried, plaited and twisted into baskets using a variety of traditional techniques which we will explore on this early Autumn weekend.
This course is part of a series of 4. Each weekend course we will work with the seasons to learn how to forage, prepare and work with a variety of wild materials.
We will explore a range of traditional basketry techniques including looping, twining, coiling and cordage to create unique and beautiful baskets.
The courses will open your eyes to the craft possibilities that exist in every garden, hedgerow, riverside, bog and wasteland!
There is the opportunity to camp at the Centre with access to kitchen, w.c. and shower. There is a small charge of £5 per person/per night.
A simple mid-day meal will be provided each day.
If you book on all four courses you will get a discount of £40 for the last (Weaving Wild- Winter) course.

    Attended this course last weekend. Absolutely brilliant. What a great site – the team there are fab. The course was great – learned so much about different materials to weave, and how to prepare them. And then how to make two different styles of pots – coiling and braiding. Both my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it – what a great way to switch off for the weekend and learn a new skill. We will be back! And already told others about this special place.
