Two-day workshop in basketry with plaited borders

Sat 8 September, 9:30 am - Sun 9 September, 9:30 am

We are delighted to welcome back our friend Jane Wilkinson for another weekend basketry workshop. This is suitable for beginners and also for those with more experience, with options to make a simple or more complex basket.

You will be able to make a round fruit bowl or bread basket or alternatively, a shopper with a handle. But in this workshop, you will also learn how to decorate them with a plaited border. These borders give a very attractive finish to the basket whilst still being really sturdy and strong.  You will also have the chance to incorporate a length of plaited rush into the fruit or bread baskets if you so wish. Whatever your level of experience, Jane will work with you at your own pace and tailor the course to suit you.

Expect a weekend of hard, rewarding work plus good fun in excellent company. Think of lovely new baskets for gathering and displaying all that autumn mellow fruitfulness!

Jane is a highly experienced willow weaver and teacher. You can see examples of her beautiful work at www.specialbranchbaskets.com.

Cost £80 plus charge for materials.
