What We Do

6 December 2014 - Informal decorative mats workshop

For our workshop on decorative mats we were lucky enough to have some lovely  buff & brown willow rods, plus some prepared willow bases. Thanks to Jane, Geraldine & Margaret.  Margaret brought along one of her mats with a Madeira border, which gave a  great effect.  She showed us how to create this  very wide & attractive border.  It is surprisingly easy to work & lies flat.
By the end of the day most members had completed a decorative mat, the patterns varying with different coloured willows or cane.
Our bring-and-share lunch was delicious, as always, with some creative fare.
Thanks to Margaret for her patient teaching & making the event so successful & enjoyable.
