About the Course

Popular Willow Weaving and Basketry tutor Phil Bradley is leading 2 day workshops in the weaving skills necessary to make a traditional Frame Basket on the April course or an English Round Basket in September.
Phil’s gentle, relaxed teaching style will guide you through the various weaving patterns for the different parts of the basket - the base, sides, and the final edging for the English basket, and the frame, ribs, the body weaves and a handle for the Frame basket. You will gain an understanding of how the willow behaves as you weave and after the final trimming up you will have a useful basket you will be proud of to take home.

Phil Bradley lives in NW Cumbria where he grows his own sustainable willow for basket-making, garden structures and also bird sculptures, all popular workshop topics.
The organic willow is included in the price and all the tools required will be provided.
8 students max.
