Learn the Art of Hexagonal Weave Basketry: The technique of hexagonal weave is common to cultures from across the globe. Once the skill is learnt it can be applied in a variety of materials to a wide range of different basket forms. Workshop participants will choose to make either a narrow style 'garlic' basket or a more open 'fruit bowl' form.

 

Weave an Icosidodecahedron: A circle divides itself perfectly into six by its own radius. In 3D six 'strands' can be woven into six interlocking circles to form an Icosidodecahedron - a structure with 12 pentagons and 20 equilateral triangles that demonstrates something of the intrinsic relationship between Dodecahedron and Icosahedron.

Weave a traditional Celtic 'Tatza': Participants will be guided through the process of creating a traditional Celtic 'Tatza' Knot Basket from willow.
