You will make a beautiful self-supporting planter ready for your sweet pea seedlings. The planter holds a large plastic plant pot (provided) to accommodate 6-12 seedlings which will happily scramble up the supports. This workshop will introduce key basketry techniques which will be a stepping stone to more complex basketmaking projects. NB: This workshop is also available at Winchester Adult Education, Weeke, on Sunday 4 March - see “Also Teaching at …”.
£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.
