From basket bags to basket lampshades, baskets have never been more popular!
Join us on Thursday 2nd April from 6:30-9:00pm in our bright and roomy Crystal Palace store to learn the basics of basketry.
In this introductory workshop to basketry, learn how to weave 2 coasters or a mini basket perfect for a succulent using the coiling technique achieved by wrapping coloured strings with a needle around the core material – a bundle of grasses.
Groups are kept small to allow for individual attention. Suitable for all levels including beginners.
All materials are included plus a succulent for your newest creation.
