What We Do

27/28 October 2018 - Workshop with Tim Johnson

Tim explained the world-wide use of the twining technique, it being suitable for a wide variety of pliable plant material. To illustrate this, he brought along examples including those from Australia & Africa.

This weekend we used mainly rush from Iris's harvest, & some Spanish Esparto grass, which Tim demonstrated how to comb before use.

Members made a slim-line pouch with handles. It has a double-walled construction resulting in an attractive diagonal patterning. Some members also tried a variety of windmill base starts.

Many thanks to Tim for bringing his experience & expertise to this workshop.
