Learn the ancient craft of basket weaving during this two-day workshop on our organic farm.

Saturday & Sunday 9.30am-5.30pm

Come and join us in our cosy roundhouse at The Community Farm to learn the ancient craft of basket weaving. During this two-day workshop you'll learn to weave your own round basket with a handle suitable for carrying your shopping, foraging or many more things!

You'll learn a range of weaving techniques; how to pair, wale, and rand and have your very own hand made basket to take away at the end of the weekend. We'll be working with locally grown willow in a range of colours.

This course is suitable for complete beginners.

Tea and coffee provided, please bring your own packed lunch.

Please also dress for the weather, including your footwear as we are a working farm, and if you have a pair of sharp secateurs bring those along (there will be enough if not)

N.B. basket making can be hard on the hands so is not suitable for anyone with arthritis/ painful hands
