What you'll do

The day will start with a walk in the beautiful hills to gather some of the materials we will then weave. Students will use a variety of seasonally available plants including wild ivy, moss, grass or blackberry to create a unique basket to take home.

Jeanette

I came to basketry through an interest in woodland management and heritage crafts, focusing on weaving in 2015 with a 2 year formal training at City Lit College, London. Here I studied many techniques, but have most recently been exploring the possibilities of plants growing local to the Dyfi Valley, having moved here in 2016. I work with moss, grass and bark alongside more traditional willow techniques to create vessels I hope are both useful and beautiful. I love sharing this unique way of connecting to environment through hands on workshops.

What's included

Drinks
Teas and coffees will be available
Equipment

Where you'll be

Depending on weather and numbers, workshops will take place either in my cosy yurt, in a barn, or outside in the surrounding landscape using the wild plants we gather. Our farm neighbours the pioneering Cambrian Wildwood which guests are welcome to explore during or after the class https://www.cambrianwildwood.org/
