About the Course

This neat little basket is ideal for picking nuts and berries, or collecting eggs.

Beginning with two hoops, your basket will gradually take shape as you add a decorative willow tie, ribs and then weaving. You’ll learn how to split willow, to shape the ribs, and some simple weaving techniques.

An East Anglian native, Jo Hammond grew up in Suffolk and Essex, now living close to the Stour Estuary.

Her degree in Fine Art shows itself in her feel for simple rhythmic designs

Other qualifications include a City and Guilds 7307 Teacher’s Certificate and a Certificate in Countryside and Heritage Interpretation

She aims to use and promote locally-grown materials and make the most of the wonderful variety of colours to be found in willow

Jo began basketmaking when living in the middle of a wood- the gift of a book opened her eyes to the weaving materials that were all around her home

Teaching and demonstrating for the last fifteen years, Jo has worked with a variety of organisations including the Field Studies Council, National Trust, Suffolk College, Museum of East Anglian Life, Suffolk Wildlife Trust, and the Woodland Trust.

A member of Suffolk Craft Society, Jo seeks constantly to learn about her craft and promote skills and enjoyment with her work.
