Weaving Wild Foraged Basketry – Spring
Focus on bark
Two Day Course – Cost – £160 Deposit £80
Saturday 11th – Sunday 12th May 2024
Join basketmaker Jeanette Gray for the first wild basketry course of the year. As Spring gets under way and the sap starts to rise it is possible to peel bark straight 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 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.
If you book on all four courses you will get a discount of £40 for the last (Weaving Wild – Autumn ) course.
