About the Course

I have been teaching this course successfully for over 8 years. Come and spend an enjoyable and rewarding day learning the magic of basketry. Have you ever looked at a basket and thought "how is it done?". Well this is your chance to learn those ancient secrets.

The aim of the course is to instruct you in a small group environment the basics of English Willow basketry. You will make a round shopping basket You will learn how to make the woven base; stake up the sides; the weaves of waling, slewing; a track border and a roped handle.

You will learn about the materials, how they are grown & harvested & gain an insight into the history of basketry in Norfolk and Suffolk. And you will take home your wonderful finished basket.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials, tools are included and I will provide tea and coffee and home made cakes.
Norfolk is a beautiful county so why not make a weekend of it. There are lots of places to stay and lots to see on a weekend.

My day of basket making was fantastic! Jonathan was a really brilliant teacher and gave everyone individual guidance. The pace was perfect and I really enjoyed learning a brand new skill. I’m proud of my handmade willow basket! I really recommend this course. Thank you very much.😊

Brilliant course on basket making, i bought this as a Christmas present for my husband. Jonathan is an excellent tutor, demonstrates each step of the process with simple clear instructions and gives lots of 1 to 1 help during the day. He is so friendly and generous sharing his knowledge. We had a fabulous day and will definitely consider doing another course to make a different basket.

Thanks Jonathan (and Willow the dog)

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Jonathan was very knowledgeable, and showed every step clearly. He was ready to help if things went wrong. I went home with a lovely, basket.
