About the Course

Hedgerow Basketry weekend residential course at Flatford Mill in Suffolk. Friday - Monday.

This weekend course introduces the traditional craft of basket weaving using some of the fascinating natural materials found in wild places and gardens.

We’ll explore the local woodlands and hedgerows to identify and gather suitable cuttings and then show you how to build your own traditional frame basket.

You’ll learn the basic skills for getting started in basketry and willow work and since it is possible to include a wide range of colours, textures and scents, the finished baskets can be excitingly individual!

There should be no costs to reimburse on this course, as the materials come free!

Jo Hammond is a local artist and Adult Education tutor with a wide range of skills and interests, teaching classes in drawing and painting, willow work and basketry.
