Grandma learning how to weave a Christmas tree

Grandchildren, parents and grandparent each made their own and learned a lot, shared ideas and discovered that sometimes the grown ups are not the best learners. They had lots of fun doing it.

Its quite hard, but fun
This stays together by weaving, its amazing!

At the Beginners workshop everyone learns a few basic techniques, then make items of their choice. Participants are always ambitious, and always take home items they are happy to display either indoors or outside.
