Join the talented local basket weaver Jeanette Gray to learn how to seasonally gather, store and prepare grasses, leaves and other fibres to coil into baskets that are both useful and beautiful.

We will explore the basic stitching techniques of this traditional basketry method, and make a small basket using materials sustainably harvested from the Cors Dyfi nature reserve.

You can of course also take your creations home with you at the end!

You can see some of Jeanette’s fantastic work Here.
