This new workshop is an introduction to traditional basketmaking.
You will be using English willow and historic basketry methods to create a wonderfully rustic basket. You will weave willow into a traditional round basket, learning about the tools and materials commonly used in basketry and acquiring the skills you need to try your hand at home. You can choose between a basket without a handle, great for storing fruit, kindling or craft supplies or, if time permits, add a handle and fashion a unique basket for carrying your bits and bobs home with you.

Before You Attend
This is a practical course involving movement around the workshop and working willow with your hands. It is a good idea to wear old clothes and practical shoes. You will be handling damp willow and, whilst every attempt will be made to keep the venue safe, the floor may become wet and slippery.
