BA Autumn School 2022 – Wrapped Twining

The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Alfreton, Derbyshire, DE55 1AU

This weave, which fascinates me, is known by different names in other countries where it is traditionally used.  We will start with the simplest version: 2 twining elements on a fairly stiff set of stakes.

One of these elements sits either inside or outside the stakes and is bound by the second element, which needs to be flexible.  We will go on to variations, gradually becoming more complex as we go.  It is perfectly possible to spend the weekend exploring the simplest method.

We can use a wide variety of materials from many sorts of thread, natural materials, such as fine rush, chair canes willow skein and long, strappy leaves, which can be cut into strips.



Suitable for students with some experience of basketmaking.

Material cost:  There may be a small charge for materials.

Fully residential course.  All students will be accommodated in single rooms with en suite bathrooms.

Registration will take place on Friday, 9 September at 17:00 and the course will finish at 17:00 on Sunday, 11 September.

There are three bursaries of £150 available to help with the cost of the course.  Members with two years’ continuous membership are eligible to apply. Please click here for more information.
