These courses are for absolute beginners and for people who've made a basket or two. Children as young as 14 can make a basket in a day. Groups are small - up to 6 participants - so you get all the attention you need.
What we make
Examples of what you could make are a small fruit bowl, bread basket, or tray with two handles, just to give you an idea of size. It's a great day to spend with friends, but also really refreshing to share with like-minded people you've not met before.
Basket weaving is very therapeutic, as you are using head, heart and hands, bringing body and mind back in sync. You will be able to completely reground and reconnect with nature.
Is this something for me?
Over the years, people with disabilities, or who were thought to be lesser abled were still able to weave a basket. Not quite sure about your abilities or whether your wrists will manage, then just get in touch and I will assess whether it's for you.
I try to organise the workshops in rural locations, as then we have the full benefits of nature around us to fully reconnect and rewind.
Please contact me for a more tailored experience.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials, use of tools (if you don't like using your own) and teas, coffees and cakes are included. I ask people to bring lunch. There will be fruit for when we get peckish.
8 hours (9:30am to 5:30pm)
