Two Day Course – Cost – £160   Deposit £80

Grasses and leaves which have finished their growth for the year can now be cut and dried ready for Autumn projects! Join basketmaker Jeanette Gray to learn how to sew soft materials into beautiful pots and bags using the traditional basketry techniques of coiling and plaiting, and go home with two unique baskets.
This course is part of a series of 4 spaced throughout the year.  Each weekend course we will work with the seasons to learn how to forage, prepare and work with a variety of wild materials using a range of traditional and innovative basketry techniques.
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.

    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.
