'Small Twine Baskets' Basketry workshop with Sherry Doyal
Sun 18 June 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 BST
‘Small Twine Baskets’ - a one day beginners workshop with botanical artist and basket maker Sherry Doyal.
Create your very own small hand made basket using twined garden strings such as sisal, jute or hemp and discover the joys of twined basketry skills - 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 .
You can also view other workshops & events we are planning!
