Following Cirencester’s successful Skep making day in February, Easter Saturday saw the second, arranged for the county.
12 members representing Cirencester & District, Stroud, Newent, Cheltenham & Glos. and South Glos. met at Harnhill and spent six hours learning the craft from Chris Park. We did break for a delicious soup and roll lunch.
Chris was extremely patient with all participants, fortunately, and we each left with the beginnings of a skep, fruit bowl, hat or other container. There were ample supplies of straw and lapping cane for us to take home to complete our creations.
We are aiming to arrange a 4th date at the end of August. Contact Helen Moreton – firstname.lastname@example.org – for more information.
