Use old t-shirts and plastic bags in an afternoon of environmentally-friendly craft

Grab any pesky plastic shopping bags you have lying around the house and turn them into a colourful woven basket at this eco-friendly workshop. Your master fibre weaver Ainsley Warner will teach you traditional coil weaving practices and stitching techniques.

In a calming creative session, you’ll bind together bright yarn and unwanted materials like plastics and old clothing to create a basket. You won’t be able to finish it on the day – basketry is a time-intensive labour of love – but you’ll have all the knowledge and a take-home pack of weaving equipment to continue your craft until you produce your woven prize.
