A day discovering traditional skills blended with colourful design to create a landscape inspired by Gilbert White’s garden

This all-day creative workshop will show you how to weave a simple hoop of willow and introduce you to the basics of the tradition of Dorset Button making, led by Hampshire creative Rachel Hartland, a keen amateur naturalist and Anglican priest.

Artist-in-residence Sophie Hacker will also explore Gilbert White’s garden with participants as you develop ideas for your small wall-hanging.

Materials will be provided, including willow, threads, up-cycled items and a variety of natural fibres, however participants are encouraged to bring along any fabric scraps, ribbons and old jewellery that might be appropriate.

The day will be based in the barn of the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre. Tea, coffee, cold drinks and snacks will be provided by the catering team at Gilbert White’s. Please bring your own packed lunch.
