Garlic Basket Workshop Saturday 5th June 1 - 4pm
This method of basket weaving is known as 'Twining'.
The garlic basket is made by twining a pair of plant fibres around a frame of cordyline leaves with a selection of natural plant fibres to use as twining materials. A skill once learnt can be adapted to many shapes and sizes of basket.
In this workshop, you will learn how to
*Prepare your plant fbres
*Make the frame
*Twine around the frame
*Form the opening
*Finish your basket
*Information on suitable plants to use and how to gather and prepare them.
