About the Course
This is a 1 day willow weaving course running from 10am - 4pm, including a delicious lunch of local breads and salads.
The course tutor is Judith Needham.
In this one day taster session, basket maker Judith Needham, will introduce you to a variety of techniques which show off the amazing properties of natural willow.
In the morning you will make a Catalonian Tension Tray. This is a perfect project for beginners, with plenty of scope for individual creativity.
After lunch, you will learn a simple plaiting technique which can be used to make little baskets and is also a great starting point for sculpture. There will be a couple of other mini projects too.
You will go home with a number of handcrafted items that you’ve made and a wealth of knowledge about this ancient craft.
All materials and tools provided.
