We’re so chuffed to welcome this other worldly basketmaker back to Tear Up Festival. Peter will be teaching the ‘Yarmouth Herring Swill’ which is on the heritage crafts critically endangered list. Peter is one of or possibly the last weaver making these. “The Yarmouth Herring Swill was a basket distinct to the fishing port of Great Yarmouth, used to carry the Herring catch up the narrow Yarmouth Rows by two people. It's a frame basket roughly in a figure of 8 shape made from hazel & willow with three handles, skis and twisted ties - packed with lots of techniques to learn”
