By popular demand, we are delighted to welcome back Jane Wilkinson for another one-day introduction to the art of willow weaving, again on a February Sunday. This is a great workshop for those who are new to this skill. This time we are thinking of shared meals with family or friends (think of long summer meals in the garden) and will focus on making breadbaskets and other small bowls. You will learn to use the tools of the basket maker and the art of soaking and preparing willow and will have the opportunity to personalise your designs.
Jane Wilkinson is a willow artisan who specialises in the design and creation of traditional and contemporary willow baskets, bespoke willow structures for gardens and specialist crafts for the bushcraft enthusiast. Her beautiful work can be seen on her website www.specialbranchbaskets.com
