I will be teaching a two day string and basket making workshop in Northumberland at the end of June.
The workshop will cover harvesting and preparation of materials; different string making techniques; making a structure with a random weave; introduction to the ancient art of looping.
Materials will be provided, working mainly with rush, but participants are welcome to bring their own plants to use as well. It will be suitable for beginners as well as more experienced basketmakers. If you have ever picked up a piece of string and been curious about how or what it’s made of… come along and enjoy exploring!
Contact me for details and more information. Here’s a little taster of the sort of things we could be making.
