We are a family of three teaching a variety of willow weaving courses including baskets and garden willow projects in the beautiful Surrey Hills near Dorking.
The Tiffin is a rectangular basket, with rounded corners created from an oak base, which we cut, drill, sand and oil for the bottom
Using a variety of willows, cane, hop twine and sea grass with leather handles you create you own beautiful basket with trac borders, three rod wale, french randing and twining or alternatively plait some rush and weave that into the basket.
This is suitable for those who have woven previously for best results but can be made by a beginner.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials, including,wood bases, willow, cane, strings and leather straps are included with use of tools.
In the current situation please bring your own food and drinks hot water is provided.

We had a fantastic day at the hut. Nicki and her husband made us feel very welcome and patiently explained everything. The basket making turned out to be great fun and this for sure not be the last time for me to work with willow. Never thought, that I could make something so nice on my first try. 😏
