Wild Basket Weaving – Saturday November 19th – 10am – 4:30pm

This is an inspiring one day basket making course. We will discuss growing, harvesting and preparing the willow material. One small round basket will be made on the day. The tutor will guide you through the various basket making techniques so you walk away with the skills to start making baskets with character on your own. The objective is also to deepen your knowledge of the willow varieties growing wild in your area and suitable for basket weaving. Finding suitable willow in the hedgerows will give you the freedom and confidence to spontaneously weave a basket as you’re out foraging. The willow and main tools are provided.

Material cost: €5
