Taster Workshop (Thursday Morning)

This 2-hour taster workshop provides a hands-on introduction to working with willow, as a precursor to my new "Beginners' Basketmaking" course of four one-day sessions starting in April. However, anyone wanting to sample willow-weaving is welcome to join in, whether or not you intend to enrol on the Beginners' Basketmaking course. During the session you will make some two or three small items to take home eg woven trees, mini stars, small flower. This workshop is repeated on Sunday 28th March.

This taster workshop is intended for absolute beginners.   

Please bear in mind that a certain amount of manual strength and dexterity is required when working with willow.   Throughout the session 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. 

A work apron is recommended.
