We had sunshine, cups of tea laid on by the wonderful staff at Felbrigg, we made some new friends, possibly new some members, had interest in our upcoming courses, a donation of fibre and yarns and an awful lot of laughs. What a brilliant day!
Sue Andrews is a hobbyist who has been creating traditional baskets using rush and willow materials for over 12 years and likes to share her skills with others. She provided the Guild with a wonderful introductory course to basket making that everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
We used buff and brown willow to make a ‘string’ basket. By the end of the day, we all had something to take home of which, we could be proud. Sue is such a brilliant teacher that our second workshop with her is fully booked and we are hoping to have another in the new year, along with a follow up class over a weekend.
Well, despite the dreadful weather we had at the Aylsham show, we had a brilliant time. We dare to brave it all again at this year’s Greenbuild event on 5th & 6th September at Felbrigg Hall. If you haven’t been before, it is the region’s biggest green lifestyle event. Find us in the craft market to see us at work!
