Traditional Willow Basket Weaving in the Surrey Hills

The basket base


We are a family of three teaching a variety of willow weaving courses in the beautiful Surrey Hills near Dorking.

This traditional stake and strand willow basket is a great place to begin your basket making journey.

Working with willow from Somerset you will create a shallow fruit bowl in a few different varieties and colours, making your own unique basket.

We teach you the process step by step and inform you how the material is grown and prepared for weaving.You will learn a variety of weaves including, pairing, three rod wale and rope weave.

Basket making requires some strength in you fingers and hands and is not suitable if you suffer with arthritis.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials are included on the course with the use of my tools, but please bring your favourite secateurs if you would rather work with them.

With the current situation please bring your own food and drink. hot and cold water will be provided.
