Two-day traditional round log or shopper basket willow workshops with Pip Cottage in Lancashire

X

Description

Pip Cottage offers basketry workshops including traditional basket making, living willow and sculpture. The workshop on Thursday 31st October and Friday 1st November 2024 is a two-day course and you will be making a round basket with or without handle/s using traditional English techniques. Working over two days rather than one gives you opportunity to experiment and immerse yourself in the processes. The venue is the lovely Stanhill Church Hall in Oswaldtwistle. Please use the 'message the tutor' button for more information and to find out more about what kind of basketry you can make on the date you are interested in. 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 15 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.

What's included in the price?

All workshops are fully risk assessed with tools and materials provided for each individual participant and tables/chairs spaced at least 1m apart. Please bring your own food and drink or buy from the site catering facilities where available.
