Details

This practical two-day course is aimed at creating woven baskets utilising green/brown willow and natural materials gathered from forest and downland walks, hedgerows and your garden. Aimed at complete beginners with no experience there will be plenty of one-to- one support with the aim of completing a basket by the end of the session. Also included in the course will be practical advice on the materials (normally classified as annual prunes) that are suitable to gather together with a possible short walk (weather permitting) to aid in identification.

There will be plenty of opportunity to forage for material in the forest during both sessions. We will also have the opportunity to explore a range of weaving processes including ‘French Randing’ and ‘3 Rod Whaling’ together with creating a border and handle for your basket in the second session.
