This Bread Basket is an ideal introduction to basketmaking. You will learn fundamental basketry skills: how to weave a round base; the insertion of side stakes and weaves around them; and finally a simple border to finish off. NB: This workshop is also available at Winchester Adult Education, Weeke, on Tuesday 2nd October - see “Also Teaching at …” tab.
£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.
