About the Course
We will collect wild grasses to coil and create unique and delicate baskets.
The course will be held at Bwlch Corog, Wales Wild Land Foundation's pioneering rewilding site. Here they are allowing native woodland habitat to restore naturally. Simon Ayres from the charity will lead a walk and talk as part of the weekend.
The Saturday night will also include magical tales from local storyteller Milly Jackdaw.
Please arrive by 4pm on the Friday of the course but no earlier than 2.30pm.
