This sweet little basket incorporates many basketmaking techniques, but is sufficiently simple that it is easily achievable by a beginner in the day. Having said that, if you are apprehensive about your abilities or speed you might like to consider the Bread/Fruit Basket workshop on 10th June which involves slightly less weaving and no handle.
£75 - 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. All 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 now limited to 5 participants so that I can provide maximum individual attention, as well as following Covid guidelines.
Refreshments are provided - please bring a packed lunch - or make use of the village shop next for where food and drinks can be purchased.
A work apron is recommended.
