Weaving Wild – Summer
Focus on natural string
Two Day Course – Cost – £160 Deposit £80
Saturday 9th – Sunday 10th July 2022
As plants reach their peak growth and strength we can utilise their natural properties to make durable and versatile string. We will experiment with a variety of plants to extract fibres for natural cordage, which we will then loop into bags.
Over 4 weekends 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 course 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.
