Willow Basket Making for Complete Beginners
with JOHN HART

I’ve been making baskets and growing willow here at Gleanings for the last 5 years and have enjoyed the whole process. It’s the sort of skill you can get lost in. During the day I will teach you to make a small basket that you will be proud of, describing the pitfalls and how to overcome them, instruct on the amount of soaking required, and teach borders and the different weaves that I use. Also, we will look at the hedgerow plants you can use and take a trip to my willow beds.
This course will give you a chance to dip your toe in the water and be ready to create baskets of your own design.
Cost of Day: £30 which includes refreshments and snacks. Please bring a packed lunch. There will be a small charge for materials used. – Please book by 27 April
