Weaving Wild – Spring
Focus on bark
Two Day Course – Cost – £160 Deposit £80
Saturday 13th – Sunday 14th May 2023
As the sap is rising it is possible to peel bark from the tree! We will focus on this flexible and leather like material- exploring different techniques of folding and weaving to create beautiful baskets and pouches.
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.
