Woven Bottle Baskets with Camilla Brendon

Get creative with artist Camilla Brendon to make a useful recycled pot or planter to brighten up your garden or interior. Alternatively, keep it as a two-dimensional woven piece to hang on your wall.

You will learn how you can reuse packaging and other throwaway materials to add character to your home and inspire thoughts on consumerism whilst aiding in the longevity of these materials.

Suitable for 8+, children should work with an adult.
