About the Course

Willow basket workshops run throughout the year at my workshop in Church Fenton. For specific dates please see my website. Generally you will make a 30cm round shopping basket.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your 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.

Had a fantastic day making a deer, would highly recommend, loved it.

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.
