Willow Weaving

Enjoy a weekend of basket making as you submerge yourself in the art of weaving a willow basket. The course will start after lunch on Friday and you can expect to make a small round basket suitable for fruit. The second basket will be slightly bigger with some different weaves and finished off with an attractive handle. There might even be time to make a third basket!

We will be using willow of different colours and varieties specially grown on the Somerset levels and there will be books and photographs to browse through to inspire you. All tools will be provided by the tutor and there will be an extra charge of £25 for the willow used.
