Weave your own Garden Obelisks and Plant Climbers with Maggie Cooper

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Make your own garden structures for climbing plants using natural materials.

Expert weaver Maggie Cooper will show you step by step how to use traditional weaving techniques to make garden obelisks, sculpture or plant-climbers using a variety of natural materials.

Course fee includes all materials and a delicious lunch from The Yard Cafe (a hand-made sausage roll with salads and a piece of cake. Veggie alternative available on request).

Maggie Cooper has been making baskets and studying the ancient art of basketmaking for nearly four decades. She is one of the foremost artists in this craft working in Britain today.

Maggie works with locally-sourced materials in search of English forms. Her work includes large-scale art installations in public spaces, reconstructing historical functional baskets, and commissions for repairs and specialist basketworking.
