During this workshop you will have an introduction to the amazing craft of Straw Work, you will make 3 items during the class and you will also find out about the materials and tools that we use. This workshop is a perfect way for beginners to explore this beautiful, traditional and natural craft and if you have done a small amount of straw work before then this would be a great class to brush up on your skills.


All materials, refreshments and 'a fine piece' are included.


Introduction to Straw Work with Elaine Lindsay

Date & Time
  • Elaine Lindsay has worked with straw for 35 years, it started as a hobby but straw work very quickly took over her life and 20 years ago her business, Something Corny, was formed. Over the years she has worked on many pieces for fashion designers and artists, made props for TV, theatre and film as well as writing books on straw work.  Elaine teaches the craft all over this country and  in USA. She has taught at Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fairs down in London and she appeared on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas programme on Channel 4 in 2018.  Her biggest passion is for teaching and passing on the skills of this beautiful craft so that the traditions will not be forgotten.
