Course fee: £100
This one day course is the perfect introduction to basketry and you will go home with an elegant basket made from beautiful willow and incorporating interesting traditional/contemporary weaves.
Working from a log section bottom the difficult job of ‘upsetting’ (putting in the upright stakes evenly spaced) the basket is already done for you. You will spend the day learning weaves and finish off with a chunky border. Handle holes or hazel handle may be attached if you wish. An easy start to learning the traditional craft of basketry.
Please note you need some level of manual dexterity in your fingers.
