Midsummer Basketry Camp – Mandy CoatesBy Cassandra Lishman
Mandy Coates is an acclaimed basketmaker who has been living and working as a basketmaker in Wales for over 35 years. She creates and designs her own contemporary baskets, often using hedgerow materials, plaited bulrushes and laths of different woods such as yew, ash and sweet chestnut. On this course she will be teaching variations of weaving with plaited rush, incorpating this into beautfiul and practical baskets. You can expect to take home one or two baskets with you at the end of this course. Mandy’s website is currently being updated, I will post info on here as soon as I have it. Extra charge for materials in cash tbc
