Willow basket workshops


About the Course

Willow basket workshops run throughout the year at my workshop just outside Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. For specific dates please see my website. There are lots of basketry workshops on offer, willow Trugs, Framed baskets, Willow Handbags, round shopping baskets and log baskets.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

The course fee includes the willow and everything else except a lunch so please bring a packed lunch with you. Tools and light refreshments / drinks are provided.

This workshop will be held in my Yurt, in a fruit orchard. It is very pretty and you will have the opportunity to peruse some basketry books in your breaks.

I had a wonderful day on a willow basket making course with great tuition from Leilah (one to one when needed - and I did need it!). Lovely location (I LOVE the yurt!), coffee, cake AND I managed to produce an amazing and unique basket that exceeded all my hopes when I first booked the day (bigger and sturdier than I'd ever hoped for). I was able to choose the finish of the willow I wanted to work with and, having spoken to Leilah before about what I wanted the basket for, was able to create something that perfectly fitted my needs. It gives me great pleasure to look at and use.

Attended a willow basket making session last year. Had one to one tuition, made a very useful basket and was fed cake too! All this in a yurt in an orchard. Would heartily recommend to anyone.
