description

During this workshop with tutor Tim Johnson you will learn the distinctive Mediterranean braided basketmaking tradition where 7 and 9 strand braids are sewn together with interlocking selvages creating a seamless fabric.

Having learnt the braid and stitch technique you will make baskets and mats with oval or round beginnings and a variety of border and handle options.

Esparto grass and palm are the commonly used Mediterranean basketmaking materials, in this workshop we will combine rush and beaten esparto with a variety of local materials for colour and texture.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of basketry ability.
