Make a Willow Basket - TRIBE Masterclass

Make a Willow Basket - TRIBE Masterclass


Join us at our beautiful woodland centre for a 2-day masterclass, learning how to make a willow basket. This is a very English tradition and one that previous generations would have known a great deal about. With the advent of plastic and cheap mass produced goods, the golden age of basket making may well have passed. However in society, we are now starting to really appreciate the value in both handmade items and using eco-friendly materials.

Willow is a wonderful resource which we use as it is able to grow very quickly and is a sustainable material. Being able to make a willow basket using your own hands, is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have in nature. Once you understand the process, and appreciate the natural resources available to us in our British countryside, you will then be able to step into the shoes of our ancestors and you too will become a basket maker.
