Spend a relaxed and meditative day learning the ancient art of basket weaving and create your very own melon basket from all natural materials. These baskets are common in many different cultures throughout the world, and involve creating two hoops (a handle and rim), adding ‘ribs’, and weaving from both ends of the basket into the middle. During the workshop, you will also learn all about the harvesting and preparation of natural materials.

What’s included:

All materials and tuition are included. You will complete your own melon basket, which you will take home with you. Tea, coffee and treats are also provided, please BYO lunch or purchase snacks in store.

About your tutor:

Jillian Culey’s connection with weaving began nearly 20 years ago when she lived and worked on a remote island in the Pacific.
