Woven: A series of craft walks. #1 Botanical Gardens, Bath
Sat 13 May 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
Spend a spring morning walking & weaving whilst soaking up the peaceful atmosphere of Bath's Botanical Gardens, home to many wonderful species of trees, plants and some friendly squirrels. During the walk you will learn the basic principles of this ancient craft using a simple, portable back-strap style loom. Working spontaneously & intuitively with recycled & locally sourced fibres, and the things that you find along the way, you will have the opportunity to create your own peice of woven cloth inspired by the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.
On the day:
Please bring your own snacks and a ball of wool for the communal basket. You are also welcome to bring a journal, sketchbook or camera to document your ideas & experiences as you go along.
Please meet at the Royal Victoria Park entrance on Marlborough Road. We will be setting off at 10am prompt so please give yourself plenty of time to find your way.
Please bring confirmation of your booking with you.
