Willow Baskets for Beginners

On this one day course you will learn to make two simple willow baskets – a tension tray basket and a Swedish fruit basket, and also learn a little about growing your own willow and what the different varieties are suited for.

The day will begin with a tour of the fabulous willow labyrinth in Barton Farm Country Park, and after a round of tea/coffee and biscuits we will set to basket weaving. You will learn some of the simple techniques that can be used to create a variety of useful baskets and other items.
