SalixArts Willow Workshop
2 Day Basket Workshop
Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th June 2014, 10am - 5pm, £120
 
A two-day basket course making stake and strand baskets
 
Lea
rn how to make your own round stake and strand basket using our own locally groworganic willow in a range of rich colours. This in-depth two day workshop is suitable for beginners and improvers, and allows plenty of time to really absorb techniques properly without rushing, to produce a lovely, useful sized shopper type basket with rod border and wrapped handle.
 
handbag baskets - elke borderingThose who have already made a round basket may wish to extend their skills with different side weaves and borders, and those with more experience (3+round baskets) may wish to complete a project of their choice. (I will need to know what you would like to make well in advance in order to soak the right sized willow)
 
I will also be running a borders workshop on Monday 20th January and I am offering a £10 discount if you book that in conjunction with this 2 day basket workshop. Borders can often make or break the appearance of a basket and I would highly recommend getting to grips with them early on in your basketmaking career!! Please advise me you wish to do both courses at the time of booking.
 
Small round basket with applesThere are a limited no. of places to do just Saturday or Sunday(£70 per day).
The small round basket without a handle shown here is the kind of result acheivable for a beginner in a day. The £10 discount on the borders course still applies to this option.

A delicious vegetarian lunch on both days and all materials are included in the price of £120
