Bark Basket Course
15th and 16th May 2021
Venue to be confirmed
Over this weekend in the woods, we will explore a number of tree barks including sweet chestnut bark, willow bark, lime bark and red cedar bark.
Each bark species is harvested and prepared with a different method. As much as possible we will sustainably harvest some samples from the woods in preparation for weaving. We will look carefully at identification and the differences in texture and properties of the varying materials and how they can be utilised in basketry.
Over the weekend you will weave a simple basket to show off your samples of bark. You will also be given small samples of the different bark to take home.
£180 per person.
Please bring a packed lunch. Delicious cakes and biscuits together with hot and cold drinks will be available throughout the day to keep you fueled up!
