SPRING TIME - making time
I'm still not convinced Spring really has come to South-east London but the daffs are out and the willow is in the soaking tank ready for a weekend of basket making at the Devonshire Road Nature Reserve in Forest Hill. Tucked away behind a road of suburban semis is this nine acre hidden gem of native woodland, wildlife ponds and nature walks. Complete with a spacious but cosy crafting space, fire pit and a green roofed, oak shelter it's perfect for spring basketry.
If you'd like to join us please contact the organiser Jake Twyford. No previous experience necessary, all materials and tools provided and Jake will be cooking the lunches on site over the weekend - so that you can relax into the weave and forget for a while whatever's happening in the world outside. Take home a basket to gather fruit and veggies or just to gather your creative thoughts for the coming season.
