Sue will demonstrate varied techniques and will be hands-on when teaching differing stitches and wrapping styles.
You’ll start with a simple basket, then move to larger baskets with more advanced stitches and pieces of wall art or make a unique piece of jewellery.
As well as twenty-five years as a primary school teacher, Sue is a talented textile and fibre artist and over the last five years, has been continuously running workshops in felting, botanical dyeing and basketry.
