Coil Basket Workshop Saturday 23rd October 2021 10am - 4pm

Solving the issue of carrying more than you can hold in your hands, baskets have been used from the Palaeolithic onwards. In this course you learn how to prepare a range of materials then create your own coil basket from bramble, nettle, flax or foraged materials.
The day will start with a short talk about baskets and basketry throughout time by Vanessa Bunton, It will be an informal talk with lots of scope for open discussion before choosing and preparing your materials and being guided through the steps to create your own replica basket.
There will also be replica and real artefacts to accompany this talk.
