The perfect introduction to basketry & you will go home with an elegant basket made from beautiful willow & incorporating interesting traditional/contemporary weaves.

Working from a ply base the difficult job of ‘upsetting’ (putting in the upright stakes evenly spaced) the basket is already done for you- it also means that you have a sturdy base to put on the ground in your garden & know your sharp tools wont ‘escape’ through the bottom!

You will spend the day learning weaves & finish off with a trac border. Leather short strap or hazel handle may be attached if you wish. An easy start to learning the traditional craft of basketry. Please note for those who work at a slower pace there will be a simpler version of the weave/border.

Please note that this workshops assumes that you are able to move around the room/stand for periods of time & have good mobility in your hands/fingers. Should you need any assistance with this or need adaptations before the workshop please make us aware.
