Weaving Wild Foraged Basketry– Summer

Focus on Fibre

Two Day Course – Cost – £160   Deposit £80

Saturday 6th – Sunday 7th July 2024

 

As plants reach their peak growth and strength we can utilise their natural properties to make durable and versatile string. Join basketmaker Jeanette Gray to experiment with a variety of plants to extract their fibres for natural cordage making. We will then look at a variety of knotting and looping techniques from around the world to turn our cordage into string bags. 
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.
If you book on all four courses you will get a discount of £40 for the last (Weaving Wild- Autumn) course.
