Traditional Basket Making



One day workshop, creating a small round rustic basket from Somerset willow. This workshop is ideal for beginners.
About this Event
You will learn the basic weaves of this ancient Somerset craft and take home a beautiful and functional vessel in which to keep your belongings. This is an enjoyable and rewarding activity, that is a joy to do in a group.

Our tutor Grace Rosamond has the experience and skill to make this a fun and creative workshop.

We will be holding this event outdoors if possible, so that we can enjoy the peacefulness of the wilderness and sweeping views across the valley. However, the weather may force us either under canvas or into our spacious, rustic workshop with a wood burner to keep us warm and cosy.
