Get immersed in nature while weaving a basket, learning age-old techniques. Go for a tailored experience and share with friends. Great for body and soul! These Crafty Basketry courses are for absolute beginners and for people who’ve made a basket or two. They are held in a tranquil setting with nature all around us to fully reconnect and rewind. Full-day courses are £110, start at 09:30 and finish around 17:30. What Can I Expect? A relaxed time, immersing yourself in being creative with natural materials in a tranquil setting; A basket made out of different varieties of Somerset basketry willow and hedgerow; Step-by-step, easy to follow guidance from the start of your base until the finished product; You will learn ancient basketry techniques and explore other projects with the same use of techniques; Find out about cultivation and preparation of willow and hedgerow materials; Learn how to use tools provided and what to use if you don’t have those tools at home; Your lovely basket is made from 100% sustainable materials, the ethical, eco-friendly way; All willow, use of tools (if you don’t like using your own), teas, coffees, fruit and cakes are included. I advise people to bring a packed lunch; and Courses are kept to a maximum of 6 participants. It’s a fantastic time to spend with friends, but also really refreshing to share with like-minded people you’ve not met before Basket weaving is very therapeutic, as you are using head, heart and hands, bringing body and mind back in sync. Working in a group allows you to share experiences, bounce off ideas, so it’s also a great way to build new friendships. Does wonders for both body and mind. Is this for me? Over the years, people with disabilities, or arthritis were still able to weave a basket. Not quite sure about your abilities, then just get in touch and I will assess to see whether it’s for you. Locations I try to organise the courses in rural locations; on farms for instance. This way, we have the benefits of nature around us to fully reconnect and rewild. Please contact me for a more tailored experience. Please note: A minimum of four delegates is required to run this course. Should bookings not reach the minimum number, this course may be rescheduled. Please book your course a week-and-a-half before the course date to allow for the preparation to take place.
