We are pleased to invite you Saturday June 3rd to the basket weaving workshop at the Hortus garden.

Every participant will bring home their own handmade basket. Does learning how to weave wicker and make a basket with your own hands in a single day seem impossible? It isn’t!

Hortus Urbis, in the Appia Antica Park, offers a course in which you will learn the basic techniques most commonly used in classical basketry by the old weaving craftsmen. A basket with a handle made of natural willow and wicker will be made.

  • Where: Hortus Urbis, via Appia Antica 42/50, Roma
  • Cost: suggested donation 45,00 euro per person
  • Schedule: from 10 am to 5 pm
  • Sign up: by noon on thursday June 1st by email hortus.zappataromana@gmail.com

Additional information:

Bring work clothes (or an apron) and a sack lunch

Weaving materials and working tools (garden shears, a well-sharpened smooth-bladed knife) will be provided by the organizers

Good manual skills required

The course will be activated with a number of 6 participants. Since the course is held outdoors, activities may vary depending on weather conditions.
