During the course, participants will have an opportunity to make their own woven rush storage basket using the indigenous common bulrush (Scirpus Lacustris) still harvested in the wild from the river Thames as it always has been. Working on wooden formers, you will be using this wonderfully supple material and techniques common to basketry to create a beautiful and useful container. You will use a number of weaves to achieve the finished basket and as anyone who has woven with willow before will appreciate how lovely this material is to work with.
This course is suitable for beginners and intermediates.
