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.
