Getting Started with Willow - Online Course and Kit



If you're looking for an introduction to the world of willow weaving, this online course and kit is the perfect choice. Sign up and you'll get lifetime access to Mollie Mcmillen's lovely 3-hour online course, where you'll learn to make three great beginner projects - a willow star with fairy lights, a willow heart, and a beautiful tension tray. Plus all the materials you need will be delivered to your door in a lovely package! Each project is designed to teach you a specific new skill that you will use when you come to make your first basket. You'll learn how to prepare the willow for weaving, how to select the right rods, how to make the willow bend without snapping it and a whole host of other new skills. Each project takes about an hour to complete. Our online courses are produced by our BAFTA-winning team of filmmakers, which means they're clear and easy to follow and our customers get great results. Plus you get lifetime access so you will retain what you learn forever.

What's included in the price?

Lifetime access to our three-hour online course with leading basketmaker and teacher Mollie Mcmillen. What you will receive in your kit: 160 rods of sustainably grown buff willow, a soaking bag (you use this to soak your willow for a couple of hours before weaving), fairy lights for your star, pipe cleaners for holding your willow in place while weaving.

What you will need

We design all our projects to be done with minimal tools. You'll need a pair of garden secateurs or snippers - that's all.
