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
The fire will be on but dress warm, it will be cold outside, 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
