Description

These courses are for absolute beginners and people who’ve made a basket or two. Teenagers from the age of 12 are also able to take part.

During this this 2-day course, you can take it all in at your leisure, really get into it and unwind. You’ll be able to tackle a bigger project! Hurray!

What to Expect
Examples of what you could make at a 2-day course are a:
- Pouch or handbag;
- Planter; or
- Tool basket.

It’s a fantastic day to spend with friends, but also really refreshing to share with like-minded people you’ve not met before.

For Body and Mind
Basket weaving is very therapeutic, as you are using head, heart and hands, bringing body and mind back in sync. Working in a group allows you to share experiences, bounce off ideas, so it’s also a great way to build new friendships. Truly grounding for both mind and spirit while you're reconnecting with nature.

Is this for me?
This is for anyone over the age of 12 years. 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, then just get in touch and I will assess to see whether it’s for you.

Locations
I try to organise the courses in rural locations; on farms for instance. This way, we have the benefits of nature around us to fully reconnect and rewild.

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.

What's included in the price?

All materials, use of tools (if you don’t like using your own) and teas, coffees and cakes are included. Please bring lunch. There will be fruit for when we get peckish.
