Come and make your very own willow shopper basket in the woods! This course will teach you the fundamental skills needed to make round based baskets with handles. These baskets are sturdy items that can last decades if looked after correctly (keep them dry!) The course includes all material, tools, hot drinks and biscuits. Please bring your own lunch and cold drinks. The course takes place in a woodland adjacent to a fossil fuel free organic veg farm. Shelter is provided in case of rain. Hot drinks will be provided by our camp fire. Do feel free to bring marshmallows!
