Description

Get immersed in nature around you while weaving an obelisk or cloche and learning age-old basketry techniques. Go for a tailored course and experience it with friends. Great for body and soul!

These courses are for absolute beginners and for people who’ve worked with willow or other natural materials before.

I try to organise the workshops in rural locations; on farms for instance, as then we have the full benefit of nature around us to fully reconnect and rewind.

It’s a great day to spend with friends, but also really refreshing to do amongst like-minded people you’ve not met before. It also opens your eyes to the variety of ways in which to apply your new skills.

Working with natural materials is very therapeutic, as you are using head, heart and hands, bringing body and mind back in sync.

Over the years, people with disabilities, or who were thought to be lesser abled were still able to take part. Not quite sure about your abilities, then just get in touch and I will assess to see whether it’s for you.

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?

The obelisk course will include learning about cultivation and preparation of willow, its many uses and will teach you some ancient basketry techniques. All materials, use of tools and teas, coffees and cakes are included. I ask people to bring lunch. There will be fruit for when we get peckish.
