*GET 3+ people together to book a PRIVATE WORKSHOP.*

Learn how to make cord/rope from flax leaves and make a small coil basket or wall hanging.

When: Email or call to discuss a day that suits  

Where:  Deloraine or I can come to you  

What to bring: Refreshments and a light snack will be provided. Please bring lunch if you need and a water bottle. Any long fibrous leaves you wish to experiment with or a favourite material/ribbon to work into your basket.

Please wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting messy.

You will twist and weave your day away in this fun, addictive 4hr workshop.

In this class, you will learn how to make flax cord/twine and a coil basket technique. Although students are encouraged to bring any fibrous long leaves to class, we will also have plenty of pre-foraged flax leaves.

This workshop is for everyone and all skill levels. It does require repetitive hand movements, however, so anyone with wrist/hands issues should be careful.

The final project will be a few metres of cord and a small flax basket. This is a relaxed, fun-filled class.

Ages 12+
