Event description

Description

Find out more about this vanishing ancient craft in this full day workshop with experienced teacher and corn dolly maker, Carol. Starting with simple traditional braids, you will learn how to prepare the straw and create simple harvest favours. We will then move onto more complex designs such as arrow plait which can be used to make a loveheart (or linked lovehearts), and fanwork with which to create an elegant house blessing. Everyone will be able to take home several pieces of completed straw work to be proud of.

All materials and tools supplied. The group size is limited to ensure that everyone gets the help they need.

Please note, that this is a 'medieval' building and lacks the comforts of the twenty-first century so dress according to the weather. Bring a packed lunch or, alternatively, avail yourself of the pubs and restaurants close by. Public toilets and parking are available on The Quay.

There are steepish steps up to the work room - please contact me to discuss access if you feel this may be an issue.
