Willow Weaving Courses

I offer willow weaving courses and workshops where you can make baskets and willow structures. I also run themed workshops such as willow for the garden or Christmas decorations or sculptures.

On every course you will learn many traditional basket making techniques and discover some interesting new words like slath, slewing, randing and wale.

Even better you will have made at least one willow basket or structure to take home with you.

All materials and tools are provided, but if you have a favourite sharp pair of secateurs and a strong penknife do bring them along.

There will also be books and photographs for you to browse through and worksheets which you can take home.

As places are limited, it is advisable to book early.
