Twilight Basket Weaving at Yarra Valley Railway (20 Feb 2019)

Regular price $0.00


Join us for some Twilight Basket Weaving with Ruth Woods of Craft School Oz at the Yarra Valley Railway in Healesville - Wednesday 20 February 2019 . We are so thrilled to be hosting an event with Ruth as she is a wonderfully talented local teacher.  And to be running the event at the Railway is exciting, as it is such a unique venue and managed and run totally by volunteers.  

Part of your ticket price will go directly to the Yarra Valley Railway to help support this wonderful asset to our town. 

The Details

Our craft evening will kick off at 6pm with a welcome drink on arrival.   Kids age 8+ interested in learning to weave are most welcome (see kids ticket price).

From 6.30 - 8.30pm

There will be two Introduction to Basket Weaving train journeys, with the first group boarding at 6.30pm for a 6.45pm departure.  Each train journey takes approx. 40 minutes and depending on ticket sales we can run two full trains (40 travellers per journey).  

All your supplies are included for the basket weaving activity in your ticket price and you'll be given your weaver's starter kit when you board the train.

The second group on the platform will enjoy their 'dinner box' on the platform and see some demonstrations of our new gorgeous 2019 workshops eg: macramé, flower weaving etc. You're welcome to join in these craft activities or bring along your own project to work on, or just sit back and relax on the platform and enjoy some downtime with friends.

The two groups will then swap over and when all the train journeys conclude at 8.30pm we will all enjoy some home-made sweet treats and tea & coffee together on the platform. 

At 8.50pm Ruth Woods will have a Chat with us
Ruth will talk us through her creative journey, throughout Australia and abroad, and learning to weave, to running her own craft business and now coaching others to do the same. She'll also outline her workshops at Crumbz Craft for 2019.
