    Basket Weaving Course

    Create your very own willow basket. We take you through the entire basket weaving process, from how to harvest your willow to how to care for your basket.

    Join us to learn how to make a traditional willow basket. On our basket weaving course we will teach you all the steps to making your very own stake and stand wicker basket, as well as discuss willow harvesting, basket after care, and look at alternative materials that can be used in basket making.

    As well as expert tuition from our instructors, and all the necessary equipment, we will provide a warm and friendly atmosphere to delve into this wonderful ancient craft.

    During this course, we will guide you how to make a small waste paper style basket. The skills you learn on our course will enable you to scale this up or down and change the base materials, giving you countless possibilities for the future. To whet your appetite for future projects we will have a display of willow baskets and ones made from other materials covering a range of traditional, modern contemporary, artistic and functional baskets. Some of these are made by our instructor team and others by local crafts people.
