    In a fast-changing world, many of us want to reduce our reliance on plastics, have the satisfaction of making things for ourselves, and work with natural, unprocessed materials that bring us closer to nature.

    Learning to make willow baskets fulfils all of these desires, and can be a springboard to a new career in craft, or simply a lifetime of pleasure…

    This is a rare opportunity to learn heritage craft in in greater depth than most leisure courses can offer, working through the fascinating range of skills and techniques that go into beautiful and functional willow baskets.

    Aim of Course
    To introduce a small group of students to willow basketry, building their skills over eight months.

    At completion of the course, participants should have become competent with all the main techniques of round willow basketmaking, aiming for work of a saleable standard.
