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 Tuesday 11th October which involves slightly less weaving and no handle.


  • Date: 10/10/2022 10:00 AM
  • Location: The Coffee Room, Church Street, Ropley, SO24 0DS, UK (Map)
  • More Info: Parking: there is ample free parking at Ropley PARISH HALL, 2 mins walk away. (You will probably pass this hall on the way to The Coffee Room!)

Description

Berry Basket Workshop: 10am - 5pm

£75 - The price of this workshop 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 participants 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!

A work apron is recommended.

Maximum class size is 8 at this venue.

Refreshments are provided - please bring a packed lunch – though there is a village shop nextdoor where you can purchase food and drinks..
