Make a harvest trophy using a 5 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+.
