Basket making

March 29 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

| £45.00

 

Willow can be used to make a range of useful objects from weaving a willow basket to a fish trap or even a chair. This introduction to willow basket weaving will give you the basic skills to produce a useful willow basket with a handle. Depending upon how quickly you pick up the skills you will probably have time to finish the handle on your willow basket during the day; if not you’ll leave with everything you need to finish off your willow basket complete with handle if you haven’t quite been able to.

The activity leader is qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts to groups and has been involved in bushcrafts and woodland skills for over thirty years.

Participants should be 16 or over. Bring a packed lunch.
