Weave a Foraging Basket
Tue, August 8 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
This new workshop is for anyone wanting to try their hand at the ancient craft of basketmaking.
It is suitable for beginners and will give an introduction to working with willow. You will take away the knowledge you need to get started on your own.
This course will help you understand more about the materials you need and how to source them. It will make you more aware of the tools required and you will learn the skills needed to make one of the earliest styles of basket.
In addition to having a new understanding of this craft and respect for the craftsmen and women of the past, you will have a beautifully organic basket to be used and enjoyed for many years to come.
This will be a relaxed workshop. There will be plenty of demonstrations and help will be on hand at every stage.
