X

Description

Pip Cottage offers basketry workshops including traditional basket making, living willow and sculpture. The workshop on Saturday 15th October 2022 is a half day we will be weaving with willow to make min sculptures such as dragonflies and fish and will be held at the lovely Parkview 4U in Lytham. There is the option of 10am to 1pm or 2pm to 5pm. Other half day workshops include: 22nd Oct wood based lantern/vase, 10th Dec Christmas decos, 16th Dec Christmas decos, 17th Dec Christmas decos. The other venues for half day workshops include Be A Garden Maker in Wigglesworth and Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington. Please use the 'message the tutor' button for more information and to find out more about the venue and what kind of basketry you can make on the date you are interested. I demonstrate how to make the objects step by step and the workshops are suitable for beginners or the more experienced. Class numbers are small and relaxed so that everyone gains the skills to successfully make their own handcrafted woven objects. I have been teaching natural gardening and crafts for over 13 years and basketry and living willow since 2012 for various environmental organisations and more recently for my own business Pip Cottage. I was lucky enough to win a Heritage Crafts Association/NADFAS Award in 2016 to study traditional English Basket-making and will be passing these skills on at the workshops. The date will be moved or a refund provided if in Lockdown.
