Date(s) - 19 Oct 2020 until 19 Oct 2020
10:00 AM - 4:30 PM
A one day course to learn the basics of ‘stake and strand’ basketry whilst making a useful waste paper basket. The waste paper basket is one of the most under valued, but commonly used and handy baskets for any room of the house!
Tutor: Jane Welsh
Jane is an experienced basket maker and attentive teacher. Her knowledge and love of willow is inspiring. She will also have a range of her own baskets for sale at extremely reasonable prices.
“I had forgotten pretty much everything about basket weaving and I took part in this workshop to remind myself so that I can continue at home. I now can continue! The teaching was very good, Jane was observant, informative and careful to ensure reasonably high quality results. Denmark Farm is a top venue with great facilities”. Blue Morgan
“Thank you so much for arranging the basket making course. Jane is an amazing and thoughtful teacher. She gives everyone her undivided attention and responds to what they want to do and their level. It is relaxing just to be with her and I learn so much. A big thank you! It was like a mini-holiday.” Jane Johns
There is an additional fee of £7.50 for the materials. Please bring this in cash and pay to the tutor on the day.
