'Pine Needle Baskets' Coiled basketry workshop with Sherry Doyal
Sun 14 May 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 BST
One day beginners workshop with botanical artist and basket maker Sherry Doyal.
Discover the wonderful craft of coiled basket making using natural materials, and create a unique coiled pine needle basket with leather base - all materials and tools will be provided.
We will sustain you with tea & coffee, and some very gorgeous cake from That Old Chestnut, a friendly Leeds-based bakery that uses organic ingredients 100% free from animal products. Please bring a packed lunch with you - local options are limited.
Skelton Grange is a beautiful, light eco-building set in a nature reserve with ponds, meadows, woodland, vegetable garden & fruit orchard. If the weather is inviting, you are very welcome to enjoy your lunch or cup of tea outdoors and wander...
You can see examples of Sherry's beautiful work on her website.
All proceeds will go to support the great charitable work of The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange Environment Centre, which you can read more about on our website .
