Basket weaving for beginners - make a round basket

We had a lovely day making our baskets and we had quite a sense of achievement at the end. We had two very usable baskets to take home and had thoroughly enjoyed our time with Emma finding out what goes into basket weaving and learning on the job. It was also a joy to meet the alpacas!

Thank you.

Attended the one day basket making workshop run by Emma at Bird Farm on the 7th September.
Have wanted to learn this craft for a long time and Emma is an excellent, patient teacher and I finished the day with a completed basket which I'm very pleased with. Lovely surroundings and a chance to see Alpacas.
Highly recommended.

We went on the basket making course as 2 adults and a 9 year old child. We all had a fantastic day and our baskets turned out surprisingly well for complete beginners, thanks to Emma's instruction! Emma was great with our daughter too; as her interest waned in the afternoon she took her aside to make a small bird feeder as we got on with our baskets. Thoroughly recommended!

Such a great day, and I am totally inspired to start making baskets at home. Emma was calm and clear in her instructions, and I can't quite believe how lovely my basket is, after just one lesson. Definitely going to return.

Fantastic day! We were complete beginners... 5 friends together. We all made brilliant and different baskets. You can choose your colour willow.. white, green, buff. Loved it so much, 3 of us have re-booked for November... I am making a log basket. Taking the opportunity of booking a cottage by the sea for 2 nights and we can explore! Emma is a lovely lady, really looked after us all and even spoilt us with homemade cakes!!! Thanks. C u in November!

It was a lovely relaxing day with Emma's selection of homegrown, wild and bought willows in beautiful shades of green, brown and white. I went to learn about working with willows for an art project but also went home with an impressive and unusual round basket I had created! The homemade cakes were great too! I hope to go again soon!
