Basket Weaving Weekend Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th September 2019
Our Basket Weaving Weekend has become an annual autumn event. Two whole days to immerse yourself in willow basket weaving, under the guidance of a professional basket maker and experienced tutor. Using different colours and varieties of willow you will weave a round-based basket of your choice – or even two. Choose from a log basket, shopping, fruit or pet basket, umbrella stand, welsh tea things basket or Irish sciob. You will learn about how willow is grown, harvested and prepared and also pick up some lovely old basket making jargon. Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.
