You will beach comb and basket sew your day away in this fun, seaside 4hr workshop.

You will explore the abundance of kelp Tassie has to share and weave a small and a large basket.

This introductory workshop is designed for beginners with no experience in basketry, as you will learn the necessary skills to make beautiful and practical kelp baskets. The workshop is all about exploration and play – not perfection.

Note: It does require repetitive hand movements and some hand strength, however, so anyone with wrist/hand issues should be careful and will be encouraged to take breaks.
