Description

The Berry Basket has been a popular basket at my workshops and I have found many students like to alter the shape or size of it and so other variations have come into being; whatever you like to call it, it is a sweet, simplified basket that is full of charm, whether you fill it with berries, Easter eggs, or hens' eggs!

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 10 at this venue.

Refreshments are provided - please bring a packed lunch – there is no shop in the village.
