(There is a lot of technique to fit into this one day workshop, so it may over-run a little - best not to arrange to do anything else immediately after - you don't want to rush your border!)

Small Round Baskets - A one-day course making small round stake and strand baskets

Learn how to make your own stake and strand round basket using traditional techniques and  locally grown, hand-harvested organic willow. This one day workshop is suitable for all levels of experience, but particularly good for beginners. Beginners may expect to make a simple round basket, with a paired base, randed or slewed sides and a rod border.Those who have more experience may wish to extend their skills with different side weaves and borders. As we will be fitting a lot of technique into one day, this workshop might end up finishing later than stated.

 A simple, yummy vegetarian lunch and refreshments are included in the price of £85, but willow is charged for at the end of the workshop depending on how much you actually use - to give you some idea, the materials cost for a small basket would be £4-£5.
