What you'll do

In each class, participants will learn all the skills to make and complete at least one natural fibre basket. You will be taken through each step of the making process, experiencing each technique fully so that you have the confidence to repeat the same basket as many times as you want. All materials will be supplied, from the local environment, which you will see growing around you. We will have plenty of time to chat about all things basketry, fibre or what ever takes your fancy.
