Learn how to make a beautiful coiled basket using naturally dyed and sustainable raffia! You will learn the fundamentals of hand stitching around a core whilst adding various colours and textures (coiling). This short course is ideal for those with busy lifestyles throughout the week and anyone looking for time out for themselves to enjoy creating their own basket.

You’ll learn basic basket making techniques including how to make a slip knot and then stitch around it to form the centre of a circle, how to use texture, thickness, and tension to achieve different results and how to finish off your basket. 

Come along and join in for lots of laughter and creativity. No two baskets are ever the same!
