About the event:
Join our resident forager Johanna to forage basket weaving material in an informal walking session along the Water of Leith. Then enjoy making your own foraging baskets the following week!
In the first of this 2-part workshop we will forage for material to make our wild ivy basket. In the second session Johanna will guide you through the process of making your very own hand-woven basket that can be used as decoration in your home or for your own foraging activities.
Please note, the exact location for our walk along the Water of Leith will be announced closer to the time and is likely to be in North Edinburgh.
