Zarzo Flower Basket

The Zarzo Flower Basket.


We are a family of three teaching a variety of willow weaving courses in the beautiful Surrey Hills near Dorking.
Based at a few different venues we can create different courses to work with you needs in these difficult times.

On this half day course which is great for beginners you will be making a beautiful Zarzo Flower basket. Also great for collecting your vegetables from the garden and many other uses.
The Zarzo originated in Northern Spain for draining the cheeses and can be made as a flat tray or a rectangular basket as well.

We begin the day with the willow talk. This will cover how and where it is grown and prepared for your project.
The different varieties that can be used to make baskets and a little bit about the history and industry of basket making.

Working in two different colours the weave sweeps around to create this unique shape and finishes of with knots on top of the handles.
Voila, you go home with a very distinguished stunning basket.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

A really enjoyable morning learning a traditional craft under the excellent tuition of Nicki & her husband. They were very welcoming and
encouraging and I was delighted with my basket to take home!

Jane Norman - - #24383

A wonderful afternoon. Nicki and her husband were so friendly and welcoming, as well as being very patient teachers.
I went home with a lovely tipi rather than the bunch of sticks I had anticipated!
Recommend wholeheartedly.

A wonderful half day weaving tipis in Nicki's woodland glade. Friendly, welcoming, positive and encouraging - it was amazing that we all could produce solidly built attractive tipis. Highly recommended!
