Befriending Bramble – Foraging & Wild Weaving

Saturday 16th July 

10am – 4.30pm

Dartington Estate 

Led by Myrtle Cooper, Wild & Curious Foraging & Emma Capper, Creative Journeys in Nature

Experience deep relaxation on a woodland retreat, where plants meet craft in a day of wild weaving, foraging and folklore.

Have you ever wondered what stories the humble bramble has to tell? What wisdom, medicine and materials are offered by bramble and its woodland friends?

Learn how to harvest and weave with this wild and ubiquitous material, as we uncover the indigenous roots of bramble and rediscover her place in our lives. 

Join us on a sensory journey of weaving, story and wildcrafting lore as we develop a deeper relationship with bramble and their land.

Bramble has no doubt been woven into your life; perhaps childhood memories of blackberrying, coming home with stained hands, a scratch despite your best efforts, and a belly full of sweet blackberries.

 The tradition of brambling dates back thousands of years, and this plant, beloved by many, bane of gardeners, offers us food and medicine, craft materials, and powerful lessons about adaptation and a modern indigeny.
