Weave a natural rush mat - 25th April 2020
Saturday 25th April 10am-1pm at Wattle and Daub in Godalming
Spend a fun morning learning to weave with natural rush. You will make a table mat or, if you prefer, a couple of coasters. Starting with a checkerboard centre and a pairing weave around the edge, there's scope for some variation in design. Some of the techniques will be familiar to those who have made willow baskets but there are interesting differences too. Rush is a much softer material so kinder on the hands than willow. The variations in colour give an appealing effect and it also smells gorgeous!
The venue is the very beautiful Wattle and Daub interiors shop on Church Street in Godalming. See their website for more details: www.wattleanddaubhome.co.uk
You will leave with a beautiful functional object that you’ve made yourself, you will have learned lots of new skills and you will never look at a table mat the same way again!
