In this one day workshop we will take you through the steps, making a number of borders over the coarse of the day. And once you feel comfortable with the border, why not try out a handle or two? The borders you make can be used as a part of a centrepiece  arrangement, as a piece of wall art or use your imagination and send us a pic!
