This sweet little basket introduces lots of traditional basketry techniques and is simple enough to complete in a day. The techniques learned will provide a grounding for more complex basketry projects. NB: This workshop is also available at Winchester Adult Education, Weeke, on Friday 15 June - see “Also Teaching at …”.
CHANGE OF DATE !
This workshop was originally planned for 9th June but I have had to change the date. Note the new date is Saturday 30th June.
£55 - includes all materials, use of tools, and refreshments
This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, but please bear in mind that a certain amount of manual strength and dexterity is required when working with willow. The projects covered on my workshops have been selected for their relative simplicity and suitability for beginners. Throughout the workshop students may need to use specialist basketry tools (provided), many of which are either sharp or pointed, so a sensible approach to personal safety is essential!
Class size is limited to 6 participants so that I can provide maximum individual attention.
Refreshments are provided – please bring a packed lunch.
A work apron is recommended.
