About the Course

THIS COURSE IS NOW SOLD OUT - why not come along in November for the next willow weaving course at Tiny Homes Holidays!

Willow Weaving Workshop with Wyldwood Willow
Over this one or two day course (you choose!) we will produce some stylish and covertable baskets.

Day One:
Saturday – A willow framebasket
Weave a traditional harvest basket just in time for Apples, Autumn berries or Fungi foraging!
This is an old style of basket widely seen in French markets and made in a variety of ways across Europe.
These rustic baskets are a wonderful addition to any kitchen garden and look great as an ornamental display.
This is a basket woven on to hoops as opposed to the stake and strand style.
Many view it as a great ‘starter’ basket for beginners.

Day two:
This style of basket we often associate with our childhood and there was a surge of making them in the 50’s and 60’s.
Based on the hoop style of basket as opposed to stake and strand …. this is a trickier basket to make and for those with some experience. New to willow weaving? Come for Saturdays workshop and then come along on Sunday to try your hand at the next level!

An amazing course, can't believe we managed to make the hampers that we did! Amanda was very patient at teaching us, and there was plenty delicious food to keep us going through out the day as usual! Would definitely recommend, gives you a whole new appreciation for the level of skill and craftsmanship that goes into each willow piece!
