WORKSHOPS

Small mossy hanging basket workshop
at The Art Bank, Shepton Mallet Thursday 22nd April 12.30 -2pm
Please contact Art Bank cost / booking

You will make a small, random, open weave willow basket (max 18cm diameter) exploring the natural colours of different willows. This will be lined with moss and compost then planted with your chosen 9cm plant. The focus will be on the joy of using natural materials and the technique will be inspired by a fusion of ancient Japanese Kokedama and the tradition of British hanging baskets.

What to bring:
One or two small 9cm plants (no larger), for example a fern, houseplant or alpine plant. Bring an apron and thin gardening gloves plus a face covering.
