with Aly de Groot
Jellyfish are plaguing oceans worldwide. Come together creatively with other curious crafters to tackle this ecological imbalance using basket making processes along with fishing-line and other recycled materials to create your own jellyfish. Weave the seas clean and weave a wish for the new year.
This class is suitable for beginners but also an opportunity for those with experience to extend their practice.
