The first of my Willow Weaving Wednesdays - one afternoon per month September to April. Come and enjoy the pleasure of weaving with natural willow - nothing as complex or time-consuming as a 'proper' basket, but fun little projects that can be completed in a 3-hour session. Each session is stand-alone and can be booked individually @ £45, or you can book the whole series for £295 and benefit from a £65 discount (see COURSES).
Willow Weaving Wednesday: SUNFLOWERS
1:30 - 4:30pm - The Coffee Room, Ropley
Weaving willow flowers is a good introduction to some basic elements of basketmaking on a small scale. Get creative with different sizes and petal shapes, and a mix of willows for colour contrast. These sunflowers can be put on a stake and positioned in the garden in the border or a pot, or simply kept indoors for all year interest.
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.
