Plaited Festive Decorations
Tutor Polly Pollock
10am – 4pm
This one-day, onsite workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with experience
Use and learn some simple plaited basketry techniques to make a collection of seasonal and festive decorations for your home this year. Many of the designs for these originate in Scandinavia and are traditionally made from Birch Bark. We will use some easily available substitute materials, including some recycled materials, to make different woven stars, hearts, reindeer etc. Some of the designs are very quick and simple to make; others a little more complex but very satisfying to make, and once the methods of making each decoration is learned, students will go away with the skills to make more at home.
Polly will bring samples and examples of woven decorations for students to observe and photograph.
