Willow Frame Basket Making
10.00 - 17.30 Sunday 14th October 2018


Weave a colorful frame basket. One may choose from two different traditional styles, with every basket certainly being its own unique creature. This is an very old style country basket, very accessible to beginners and always more to learn for the experienced. One could spend a lifetime honing in on the techniques and infinite possibilities of styles and shapes that frame baskets have to offer.
80 euros for the day, (20 euro deposit required)
including organic lunch, materials and tools
course size limited to 6 people

The two day course is a unique opportunity to deepen our relationship to willow and the ancient techniques of basket weaving; we will be working with a few different weaving patterns-(functional and decorative), understanding shaping techniques, borders and handles. Certainly a full two days! Due to limited materials I am only able to offer a two day course once or twice a year.
