Learn the basics of this ancient craft and leave with your very own traditional foraging basket. You will be using local willow, in a range of colours, and foraged bramble to make a small frame basket – perfect for harvesting the abundance of fruit in our hedgerows. For anyone who wants to, we will spend a small portion of the day foraging for bramble in the woods at Hawkwood.

What's included in the price?

All materials included. You will also be provided with a delicious two-course lunch, along with two tea breaks with home baked treats.
