About the Course

This course is a great introduction to the art of willow weaving and basket making.

Under the guidance of Rachel Evans (over 20 yrs' experience) you will learn how to select, prepare and weave willow.

You’ll examine different varieties and learn the basic skills of creative and technical weaving. At the end of the day expect to take home a willow basket with handles.

Greenwood Days have been running woodland craft courses since 1998. The course centre is set in a beautiful 90 acre wood in the National Forest on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border. 

Our tutors are all highly skilled professional craft workers and teachers who share our passion for preserving, promoting and passing on these crafts and techniques. Come and enjoy the beauty of the woodland, be inspired, be creative, learn a new craft.
