What we’ll do

We will take the guests for a tour in our permaculture forest garden. Post a refreshing cup of Darjeeling tea, we will start the process of learning how to split, strip and weave with bamboo. We will then go through the simple technique of weaving fences and then graduate towards weaving a bamboo basket.

What else you should know

Just like any other art-form weaving with bamboo requires patience and focussed attention. Our one day workshop will introduce you to the craft but to master it you will need to practice it often.

What I’ll provide

A sumptuous organic meal with fresh produce from the forest or sourced from local organic farmers.
Darjeeling Tea
Bamboo Sticks to practice splitting and stripping. Also, strips of bamboo, previously stripped to practice weaving.
