About the Course
One day basket making course in the South-West.
Spend the day making a basket woven from Somerset willow with experienced local tutor, Paul Windwood. With only five places per course you will get plenty of tuition from Paul who will ensure you have a beautifully crafted basket to take home with you at the end of the course.
This is a relaxed and informative day where you will learn lots about the history of basket making as well as learning the practical skills in a small, friendly group.
