Twined Basketry - Saturday 18 June 2022
This course will introduce you to the basketry technique of twining which
can be done with a very wide range of materials. We will use colourful
jute twine to make a small round basket.
No qualifications are required, however you do need reasonable
dexterity and strength in your hands in order to be able to manipulate
the jute thread for a full day. Jute twines shed fibres so please wear older clothes or bring an apron.
All materials and equipment will be supplied
Catherine Tregaskes has been making baskets with a range of materials for more than 10
years and run basketry demonstrations at events as well as teaching a
variety of courses. You can visit her at Cambridge Open Studios in July
of each year.
