Join our instructors for an introductory day of Willow basketry, and craft an item from this wonderful natural resource to take away and use at home or in the woods!
You will be taught the basic principles of working with willow and will be guided through the process of making your own small round willow basket.
We will also cover other aspects of basketry including; alternative weaving techniques, sourcing your own material from the hedgerow, adding handles, oval baskets etc. All tools and materials to take part are supplied. Your finished item is then yours to take away!
This course is for over 16's although under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. There will be hot and cold water for drinks and a base camp style toilet for your comfort. This is a non catered course and so you will need to bring along a packed lunch and snacks.
