Palm Leather Basket Workshop (30 August 2020)
Palm Leather Basket Workshop with Julya Hegarty: 10am–2pm Sunday 30 August
Join weaver and ceramicist Julya Hegarty on 30 August to learn how to weave an eco-friendly basket using natural palm sheaths that you can use as a bag, planter or to store other precious items in your home. In this workshop, you will use softened palm sheaths to sculpt the shape of your vessel, and use raffia or other natural fibres to stitch the basket together. The end result is a stunning basket with a leather-like appearance. You will make two palm leather baskets during the workshop to take home.
Plant Empire's workbench honours everyone for their individuality and creative contributions: this introductory weaving course is suitable for all levels of weavers, from beginners to experienced individuals. All materials will be provided.
