Come and learn how to craft and weave with soft supple Rush. Growing in the lakes and slow moving rivers of England, rush has been used for centuries to make baskets, mats, hats and all manner of items. Louise from Rough Around the Hedges will guide you through several small craft items and provide all the tools and materials. Manual dexterity and patience required.

* If you book both the the morning Willow Platters & Bowls course and the afternoon Crafting with English Rush course, you will receive a £10 voucher that can be used when booking any future Adult Learning course. *
