Half-day Basketry Courses

Looking to get creative, now days are getting longer? Why not use a half-day course as a taster to make something for the garden or indoors and find out whether you’d like to weave something bigger next. 

During this course, you will get familiar with hedgerow and willow, while using some ancient basket weaving techniques. Make a gift for a loved one, or treat yourself and enjoy it for many years to come.

Basketry is very therapeutic. You can spend a fantastic morning or afternoon with friends, but it’s also really great, being with like-minded people you’ve not met before.

What can I expect?

  • Step-by-step guidance from start to finish;
  • Explore the versatility of techniques;
  • As you are using your head, heart and hands, bringing body and mind back in sync, you are in the moment and regrounding.
  • Working in a group allows you to share experiences, bounce off ideas; a great way to build new friendships.
  • Upon booking your course, you can opt to take part in a survey for me to get an idea of what you expect from your course, so I can make sure I’m still relevant.

What is included?

  • All materials (willow, rattan, rush or hedgerow, dependent on the course type);
  • Use of tools (if you don’t like using your own, I will have ample tools for everyone);
  • Teas, coffees and fruit for when we get peckish.

Is this for me?

Over the years, people with disabilities, or who had arthritis, were still able to take part. Not quite sure about your abilities, then just get in touch and together we will assess and decide whether it’s for you.

Location

I try to organise the courses in rural locations; on smallholdings and forest school areas, for instance, so we have the full benefit of nature around us to fully reconnect and rewild.

Please contact me prior to booking, if you feel your course may need to be tweaked to your abilities, or if you’d like a more tailored experience.

There is a maximum of six and a minimum of four participants per course. Should the minimum not have been reached, then the course will not take place and you will be emailed to reschedule.
