The Wash House Garden, Glasgow.

15 May 2024.

Join us for a meditative outdoor weaving class. You’ll learn how to weave a fat ball bird feeder, using willow basketry methods dating back thousands of years. This is a perfect introduction to basketry.

Max Johnson is a longtime forager, community and market gardener and crafter. For Max, basketry is about connecting to our ancestral roots by weaving beauty out of what natural resources we have around us. Max is largely self-taught and believes basketry should be mindful, meditative, creative and fun. Max is a member of the Scottish Basketmakers Circle.

Suitable for beginners, no weaving experience necessary. All tools and materials are provided. Please note this event will be outdoors (although under a canopy), so please dress appropriately for the weather!

£30, 6.30 – 8.30pm
