You will make a beautiful willow sweet pea planter to hold a large plant pot (supplied) that can later be planted out with sweet pea seedlings which will scramble up the supporting stakes. This workshop will introduce key basketry techniques which will be a stepping stone to more complex basketmaking projects. Course Code: G14D
£44 + £8 (payable on the day for materials), includes use of tools.
I run this workshop for Peter Symonds College and it is very similar in content to my own Workshop on Tuesday 6 March at Beauworth. Please be aware that class sizes may be larger, timings differ and that there is an additional £8 fee, payable on the day, to cover materials. PLEASE BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THE COLLEGE either using the BUY NOW link below or by phone 01962 886166 / online www.psc.ac.uk/ahed.
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!
Refreshments are available to purchase at the Centre – please bring a packed lunch.
A work apron is recommended.
