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
Learn how to make your own round stake and strand basket using our own locally grown organic 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.
Those 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.
There 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
