About the Course
Come to the Surrey Hills for a day of weaving.
This is a great introduction to working with willow as we weave from a wooden base to create a beautiful woven round basket.
Choose to add a handle or make a larger kindling basket without one.
Learning trac borders, three rod wale and a spiral border your basket will be functional and stylish.
We offer different willow and a few other materials so it will be very individual.
This basket workshop is ideal for beginners and we also cover where to source the materials and how to prepare them for use.

What's included in the price?

Thank you Nicki and Brian for such a wonderful day, you made me feel so welcome, and I had such an enjoyable time making the most beautiful willow baskets. I went home feeling so inspired and with such a great sense of achievement :)

What a thoroughly enjoyable day. Nicki and her daughter Jaz were excellent tutors. Clear instructions, quick to help and really nice people. Nicki is very knowledgeable about all things willow and a great cake baker!
My husband thought perhaps I had bought the beautiful basket I brought home! Genuinely cannot believe what I achieved. Can’t wait to do another!
