Thanks to the organisational efforts of Sonny Shepherd, members and friends of the Orchard and Margery Flatts allotments were able to take part in a basket weaving workshop led by Joe from Abundant Earth.
Joe was a brilliant teacher, talking us all through the processes of making a traveller basket. Starting with two circles, we were all able to produce, with help from Joe, a beautiful woven basket. Joe made it look easy but it was trickier in practice and you definitely needed to know your left from your right!
As it was a day workshop, we all brought along some lunch to share, so we all ate well too!
Many thanks to Sonny for organising the days, and look forward to the next one!
