Learn to make Fabric Baskets

Fabric, which is no longer needed, can be repurposed to make useful and decorative baskets for the home. Torn fabric strips are wrapped around an inner cord and secured, using a technique referred to as “coiled basket weaving”. Everything is done by hand, so no sewing machine is required. No experience is needed, come and have a go.

This workshop is run by tutor Merete Hawkins.

10 spaces available. Over 18’s only.
