Make an 8″ potting sieve and a 18″ garden riddle with England’s only traditional sieve and riddle maker, Steve Overthrow, some of the most ancient tools dating back thousands of years, just as useful today as ever before.
You will steam bend the riddle rims around a form and learn age old methods, tacking together riddle rims, drilling, weaving and tensioning the individual wires. In addition you will make a small potting sieve learning how to cut and fit a pre-woven mesh. You will take home some robust and useful hand crafted tools that will last a lifetime.
Perfect for gardeners, home-growers or foragers, bakers and metal casters!
