CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: All my current season of workshops have now been cancelled and all participants should have been contacted about refunds (if you have not, please contact me!).
I am working on re-scheduling as many of these workshop as possible, and making plans for the Autumn/Spring topics. If you are already on my mailing list, you will be automatically notified as soon as these are published.
If you have any special requests for topics I am always happy to hear about them! Many students who want to learn more about basketmaking have asked about on-going/progressive courses, and that is something I am planning to introduce. If you are on my mailing list, you will be the first to know!
I am always asked whether basketmaking is hard on the hands, and the answer is yes, to some extent! Certainly some beginners can find that a whole day can be quite tiring on thumbs and fingers, so I have introduced several half-day and evening workshops to lessen the impact! However, these can be doubled up to form a full day if you wish (charged at the one-day rate, saving £10).
My full range of workshops is listed under WORKSHOPS BY DATE/TOPIC.
Half-Day and Evening workshops: £35 One-Day Workshops: £60 Two-Day Workshops: £110
If you book two consecutive half-day or half-day+evening workshops the charge will be the same as for a one-day workshop: £60 ( a discount of £10).
How to Book
You can book online by clicking on the topic of your choice and then clicking the READ MORE button which will take you to a page of more information where you can fill in your details in the TICKETS box. Then click CHECKOUT. I now have a PayPal facility so you can pay online at the time of booking (preferred), or you can pay by bank transfer or send me a cheque (the necessary information will come up on screen if you choose either of these options).
If you cannot find the topic you would like, do let me know and I can either set one up in the future or run one specially for you. One-to-one lessons can be arranged also. Equally if you have a group of friends who like to socialise with a focus, a basketmaking day can be a lot of fun. I run private workshops either at the Coffee Room or in your home (if you have the space!) - just get in touch to discuss.

Talks & Demonstrations
I am happy to give talks about basketmaking, where I bring along lots of examples of baskets, including ones in various stages of construction and talk about how they are made. If you represent a group who would be interested in this, please get in touch.
