By popular demand we are offering yet another chance to work with Jane Wilkinson http://www.specialbranchbaskets.com and learn the basics of basketry. This intensive two-day course will give you a thorough grounding in the skills and techniques required to make a round willow basket. Each participant will tackle their own individual project after a brief discussion of the possibilities. You will also be able to include found objects, such as deer antlers, shells, winter foliage and hedgerow materials if you wish to create a more sculptural piece. Or you may wish to concentrate on a utilitarian project such as a willow shopper or small log basket. The choice is yours.
This class is a good follow on from the Woven Fruit Bowl class, the Festive Willow Crafts class or as a standalone option for those either new to the craft or wishing to refresh their basket-making skills.
Cost: £80 plus small materials charge.
