A beginner/refreshers introduction to willow basket making.

We will be using traditional ‘stake and strand’ techniques to make a minimum of one round basket each. During the workshop you will get instruction on how to handle willow as a material and some of the creative techniques used. There will be information on the types of willow suitable for basket making , where to get it and how to grow it if you so desire!

This course is suitable for complete beginners AND those with previous experience or that have completed the one-day Introduction to Willow Weaving workshop in March. Participant numbers are small to allow plenty of individual tuition and assistance from tutor, Georgia Crook.

Please bring along a sharp sturdy hand knife and a sharp pair of secateurs.

£145    Includes tea / coffee and all materials. Please bring a packed lunch each day.
To book your place, request a booking form by email or tel 01381 600354.
