About the Course

Make a log basket to sit next to your fireside in the winter months
To attend this course you need to have previously woven a stake and strand basket. This course will include different techniques of willow weaving and basket making. To start you will learn how to create a large round base with hidden joins. Sarah will talk you through different types of weave so you can design the sides of your basket. Finally you will turn the side stakes down to be a beautiful border and then add twisted handles.

Our willow courses include different techniques of willow weaving and basket making. You will have a wonderful day in a beautiful setting learning an ancient craft.

If you would like to attend please book through our website using the Book online button above. You will also find more courses on our website.

Sarah Hatton, the course tutor, has been willow weaving since 2008. Sarah has recently passed a City and Guilds in basketry making her a qualified basketmaker. Sarah was awarded the Craft Showcase Award 2015 at Made by Hand, Cardiff. She grows her own willow in Caerphilly which gives her a yearlong sustainable source of willow.

I really enjoyed it and found the class quite interesting. I always wanted to work with willow but never managed the courage to just get up and go . I am glad I did it. Also would like to know when there will be another course.
