Join us into an exploration into the world of plant fibres and their craft applications. Over the course we will work with a wide range of locally sourced plants and trees, learning methods of harvesting and processing fibres and barks into useable weaving materials.

We will introduce you to a variety of weaving methods using flat materials, cordage making, twining and pairing, braiding and plaiting and coiling methods of creating baskets vessels and mats.

Some of the materials we will use include nettles, rosebay willow herb, soft rush, New Zealand Flax, pine needles, lime, willow, sweet chestnut and red cedar bark and any others we can get our hands on!

Where opportunities arise we will take a foray outside and gather the materials from the source.
