Introduction to Basketry
Malthouse Hall Atcham, Shrewsbury, United Kingdom
There's nothing more exciting than working with natural materials and simple hand tools, to create something unique and beautiful.
Come and join me at the lovely Malthouse Hall in Atcham (near Shrewsbury), for a day where you'll learn the art of basketry.
In this workshop we'll be using a range of willow materials that we'll bend, weave and shape into all manner of items. We'll make a variety of decorative pieces which could include flowers, dragonflies, hearts, fish and stars.
The processes that we'll be going through to make these items will introduce you to all of the main techniques you'll need to know if you want to take your basketry further.
No previous experience is required, and all the tools and materials you need will be provided. The group will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants so that everyone has individual attention, and is able to have the best chance of taking something away that they're really proud of.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided - but please bring any food that you need on the day.
This event is for adults aged 18+.
