Join me next Saturday at The Base to make a basket in a day
This will be my last class for this year where you can make a complete basket before my workshops go all Christmassy at the end of October!
10am -5pm at The Base which is a new venue on Greenham Common run by Newbury Corn Exchange.
The Base is about 10 minutes from Newbury at RG19 6HN. There's a great café in the building run by The Honesty Group and the current exhibition is all about the artists who illustrated Ladybird books.
The class is, I think, the most interesting class that I teach. The process of making a basket (in this case using the 'stake and strand' technique with an English base) is fascinating. At the end of the day you will leave not just with a beautiful, functional object that you've made yourself, but also with a wealth of knowledge that will cause you to examine any baskets you come across with a new insight. You may also leave tired and with slightly sore thumbs but it's worth it! I do hope you can join me.
