Straw Plaiting Workshop – Traditional Dacorum



Recently, we ran our first event for our Traditional Dacorum HLF funded project. We took some lovely historic objects from the collection relating to the local straw plaiting industry to show everyone and also some to handle. As you can see this inspired the creation of some fantastic corn dollies and also a slightly unexpected spider! Thanks again to Berkhamsted Arts and Crafts shop for hosting the event.

Our next event is a workshop to create your own beautiful canal art roses learning from signwriter Hannah Matthews. It is also being held at the Berkhamsted Arts and Crafts shop on the 7th April from 1:30-3:30, for more information and to book a place please go here
