COLOURFUL COILING with Polly Pollock


DATE:
15 September 2017
TIME: 10.00-4.30
VENUE:  Isfield, near Lewes
COST: £90


Work with raffia dyed in a fabulous range of colours and learn how to make a colourful (or if you prefer, more muted!) coiled basket,  using the bundle core method.  Coiling is a unique basketry technique in that it is stitched rather than woven.  

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
On this one-day workshop you will learn ways to get started, basic stitches and approaches to finishing.  It is a slow technique, so depending on how fast you work and what scale you make your basket, you may need to complete your basket at home, but if this is the case you will receive plenty of demonstration and instructions on how to complete your work.  All materials (raffia) and equipment will be provided to make a small coiled basket. 


WHO IS THIS COURSE SUITABLE FOR?:
This course is suitable for those who are new to willow basket making, or those who would like to refresh their basket making skills.

 

INCLUDED IN THE PRICE:
A light vegetarian lunch
Tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the day
All materials and tuition
