Join expert, Sarah Hatton for this all-absorbing workshop in basketry. On day one you will weave a small round basket using traditional English and French techniques. The second day offers the chance to make a round/oval basket with a handle or another item of your choice. Alternatively you may decide to construct a large log basket or similar over the 2 days.

This course is designed for all abilities from the complete novice to experienced basket makers.

“Great course, very informative and enjoyable.” J.B.
