This workshop is the perfect introduction to the ancient art of basket making and will see you making an attractive basket - in a day!
Making baskets is a fascinating skill to learn and the process can be extremely therapeutic. Your experienced tutor has been making baskets since the early 1990's, preferring to work with unstripped willow, a lot of which she grows herself.
This workshop is a suitable for beginners and also those who have some basket making experience. You will be guided through the making process and will learn the various techniques required to make a substantial round-based basket, known as a fruit basket, around 30cm in diameter.
The workshop will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm, with a pause for lunch partway through the day. All materials and equipment are provided, including a workshop apron for you to wear during your day. Due to the nature of the workshop, we recommend wearing suitable clothing and footwear.
Places on this workshop are limited to 8.
