What you will learn
In this day-long workshop you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the ancient craft of willow weaving.
In this workshop we will be learning to make a small berry basket with handle.
I will guide you through the process of selecting your willow, weaving the base and some basic techniques for weaving the sides and folding down a border. We will talk about shaping your basket and the different ways you can add a handle. This will be a small class of around 6 people so there will be plenty of time for questions and one-to-one tuition.
The workshop will take place in Ellon, upstairs in the Kirk Centre (The Upper Room)
This workshop is suitable for beginners and those who have tried a bit of basket weaving before. Please be aware that willow weaving can be hard work for the hands and may not be suitable for some people with Arthritis or very weak hands.
This class is for Adults or young adults (14+years) when accompanied by an adult also taking the course.
