10.30am - 4.30pm
To coincide with our main gallery exhibition Weaving Ghosts, artist Lois Walpole will be leading a day-long weaving masterclass showcasing traditional basketry skills and exploring the role of recycled and found materials in her practice. Participants will have the opportunity to employ the techniques that they learn in the session to create original works using materials that have been collected locally.
Letchworth Festival will be running a separate community litter picking event on 15 June in collaboration with Plastic Free Letchworth, and we strongly encourage those looking to attend the artist workshop to join in as the project will generate a wide array of useful materials that will be suitable for weaving.
