Come on this relaxed and fun basketweaving weekend to learn the principles of willow basketmaking, creating your first basket (s) or learn new weaving skills to incorporate into your practice!

Students will be able to create one large or two smaller baskets over the weekend, working within round basketry techniques.

We will cover: round bases, pairing, staking up, waling starting with butts or tips, French and/or English randing, other weaves if wished, rod and or trac borders, handles or handle holes if wished.

If there are particular skills you would like to learn, please get in touch and I will see what I can do to include them.

The course is suitable for beginners or those with basket weaving experience.

Please book at least 10 days in advance to allow me time to sort and soak the right amount of material.
