This one-day workshop will be an opportunity for beginner and intermediate basket weavers to explore the use of plant fibre in the construction of a small basket. You will learn about foraging for plant fibres like common rush, iris blades, and lily leaves. Ralph will be demonstrating methods of processing and storing the material, as well as several weaving techniques to help you complete your basket in a day. Most materials are supplied, but you are welcome to bring your own fibres – wool, fabric, ribbon etc to incorporate and individualize your own creation.
Registration Deadline: 24 April 2021
