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.
