Despite the poor weather, we have so far held four successful courses, thanks in no small part to the enthusiasm and skill of my assistants, Owen, Jack and Synnove. We developed an ‘Irish-satin’ weave making use of Danish cord (in both natural and black) as a very effective alternative to the bark-seating. On one of the courses it was a pleasure to have three generations from the same family. We also seem to have been accepted into the woodland by the local wildlife, with a family of thrushes being reared in the entrance to the washroom and a family of wrens making their home under the dry cover of our dining area.
One thought on “The Spring Courses”
Hi Mike, I’m over here on the other side of the pond and am really interested in seeing and weaving that Irish pattern you guys made up. Do you have the pattern I could buy? Thanks so much, The Wicker Woman®–Cathryn Peters email@example.com https://www.WickerWoman.com
