Crafting with Rush



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. *

How we are addressing issues associated with COVID-19 on every Adult Learning course.We have fully revised our risk assessments to adhere to the Government issued COVID 19 guidelines.

*We ask that upon arriving at the centre, the delegates remain in their cars until just prior to the course start time.(arrangements will be made for those not driving).

*We will welcome delegates in our outdoor classroom rather than inside the centre.

*The delegate’s temperature will be checked on arrival and anyone showing any symptoms which could be COVID-19 related, will be asked to go home. They will be given the option of receiving a course credit, a place on another course, making a donation or a full refund.

*All surfaces and any equipment will be fully sanitized prior to each course.

*Hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers will be required before entering the premises and throughout the day.

*There will be a maximum of 10 delegates on this course.

*We will maximise the amount of time spent outside whenever possible.

*The doors and windows will remain open during this course to ensure regular airflow.

*Classroom seating will be set up ensuring the 1 metre + distancing rules are met.

*The tutor will retain a 2 metre + distance from the delegates. In the cases where this is not possible, a face covering will be worn.

*Following government advice, it is suggested that delegates wear face coverings indoors.

*Delegates must bring their own water bottle/hot drink and cup. We are a nut-free centre, so please avoid food containing nuts.
