Older Kids (9 - 12) kids Courses

Weaving – Garden Baskets

Sian Boucherd beg

Using beautiful natural materials including grasses, twigs and feathers learn how to make your own woven basket incorporating these treasures from the garden. Embelish your basket with mini pompoms that you will be shown how to make, and anything that you would like to bring along to add to your basket – sea grass from the beach, a favourite piece of fabric or lavender from your garden. A great way for kids to engage in nature play.
