Spend a day learning about the traditional and endangered craft of straw work. During the workshop your tutor will teach you how to prepare and store the straw, as well as discuss the history and significance of this humble material.

Make a harvest trophy using a five straw spiral plait, learn how to increase, decrease and add new straws. The workshop will take place behind the scenes in the Conservation Laboratory, where you can take inspiration from straw work in the museum collections for your own work!

All materials are included.

Please bring an apron, as the straw can be dusty.

No experience is necessary, although some manual dexterity is required.

Suitable for 18+.
