Artist Simone Simons will teach one simple plaiting technique in esparto grass with lots of possibilities. Participants will plait long bands and learn how to stitch these long bands together with a needle and a thread into a small basket. Simons will also teach a technique of stitching. To a certain degree, students will be able to design their own piece.
- Accessible for more experienced public in textile techniques.
- We will use Spanish esparto grass provided by the teacher and we can experiment with local plant fibres and combinations of both materials.
- The aim is that participants are able to use these techniques in proper designs with local plant fibres and/or other materials.
