About this Event

Knotless netting using simple looping techniques is probably among the earliest techniques used by mankind for garment making. Fabric that is able to be shaped.

In this string making workshop, using  garden leaves which have already been foraged for your use, we will make knotless netting into a small bag or decorative container. The techniques learned form the basis of fabric making.

All of that is a fancy way of saying, that basically, we’re going to have a fabulous day playing with leaves whilst enjoying good company.

From 10am till 4pm gives us plenty of time to explore and make to our hearts content, with time for lunch of home made soups and cakes made from produce from the garden, and a walk and talk in Sophie’s early spring garden. A fabulous way to spend the day. 

This is a strictly limited special event with a maximum of 15 people, morning tea and coffee on arrival and lunch included.

Numbers are limited so get in early.
