Description

Pip Cottage offers basketry workshops including traditional basket making, living willow and sculpture. The workshop on Sunday 14th July 2024 is a full day and we will be making lovely frame baskets at Cedar Farm in Mawdesley. Other full day workshops include: 5th Sept - Traditional basket at Stanhill Church, Oswaldtwistle. 29th Sept - Rectangular bag with handle at The Rewilding 26th Oct - Traditional round basket at Cedar Farm 5th Dec - deer sculpture in Stanhill. Full day workshops are held at Stanhill Methodist Church in Oswaldtwistle, Cedar Farm in Mawdesley and The Rewilding in Cockerham. Please use the 'message the tutor' button for more information and to find out more about the venues and what kind of basketry you can make on the date you are interested in. I demonstrate how to make the objects step-by-step and the workshops are suitable for beginners or the more experienced. Class numbers are small and relaxed so that everyone gains the skills to successfully make their own handcrafted woven objects. I have been teaching natural gardening and crafts for over 15 years and basketry and living willow since 2012 for various environmental organisations and more recently for my own business Pip Cottage. I was lucky enough to win a Heritage Crafts Association/NADFAS Award in 2016 to study traditional English Basket-making and will be passing these skills on at the workshops. The date will be moved or a refund provided if in Lockdown.
