Basket Weaving Course

About the Course

Located between Canterbury and Ashford, join us on the beautiful Kent Downs for this introductory 1 day basket weaving course.

Our hunter-gatherer ancestors were particularly skilled at making baskets using a host of different materials for a wide range of uses, from purely practical to ceremonial. We’ve put together this basket weaving course for anyone who would like to learn this fabulous skill.

This day course will look at the ancient craft of willow basketry. You will be introduced to the materials and tools required and then be guided through the process to make your own round, handled, willow basket.

About us and the venue:

Jack Raven Bushcraft was founded in 2011 and we've been delivering bushcraft, craft and foraging courses since then from our 30 acre private ancient woodland on the Kent Downs in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Courses in the summer are held outdoors in our woodland camp complete with covered work areas, an outdoor kitchen and a composting loo. Courses in the winter are held in our workshop in a converted barn.

Through the day we will also look at:

- Alternative weaves such as randing and wailing
- How to make oval and rectangular shaped baskets
- Different border designs,
- Collecting and preparing your own materials from the hedgerow.

Time permitting we will also explore other methods of basketry such as coiled and rubbed baskets.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

We will provide all tools and materials as well as a plentiful supply of tea and coffee.
