Basket Weaving with Rush and Soft Materials – In Person Workshop At Horticultural Centre of the Pacific
June 29, 2021 @ 9:30 am$120 – $140
We will explore weaving baskets with soft materials such as rush, sedge and flower leaves such as iris and daylily leaves. These materials are lovely to weave with and offer the opportunity to explore various twining patterns. Shaping soft twined baskets can be done with or without molds and both options will be presented. The ancient skill of making cordage will also be explored. Discussion will cover the identification of useful plants you might find in the garden, sustainable harvest practices and preparation for weaving.
This is an In-Person Workshop being held at the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific following Covid Protocols.
Date: Tuesday June 29, 2021
Time: 9:30 – 4:30
Workshop fee includes Material Kit: HCP Members $120 / Non Members $140
