Make a useful and beautiful willow basket using traditional weaving techniques.
Donald will guide you as you make a round bread/fruit basket using a selection of Fife and Somerset willows. Starting with the creation of a traditional round base, we will then attach and weave the sides before completing the basket with a border.
This day is suitable for beginners who want to try willow basketry for the first time, and also for people who have done a little basketry already and want to do more.
Your willow basket weaving Tutor lives with someone who is still needing to shield and is in a very vulnerable position.
With this in mind, we ask that if anyone is feeling unwell that they do not attend the workshop, to take a lateral flow test where possible or wear a mask.
While this is no longer our general policy for attending a class, in this circumstance we feel it necessary and we are sure that you can understand.
The room is large and there are only 6 participants. It will be well ventilated and we all have the luxury of a large table each to ourselves, so we are well spaced apart.
Tea and coffee is available throughout the day but please do remember a packed lunch!
We will be making a useful and versatile round willow basket using a number of traditional techniques. All materials and tools will be provided.
