This workshop is best suited to those with some previous experience of basketmaking  as making an oval base is more complicated than a round one.  If you have attended my previous workshops such as the Berry Basket, Sweet Pea Planter, Traditional Round Basket with Handle, or Easter Egg Gathering Basket you will be sufficiently familiar with the techniques to tackle this project.  If you are in any doubt about your abilities, please contact me to discuss.

Always please bear in mind that a certain amount of manual strength and dexterity is required when working with willow.    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 on each day, or there is a village shop next door where food can be purchased.

A work apron is recommended.
