Come and weave your own beautiful sun hat out of rush, a soft and aromatic material.
Rush is a wonderful material to weave with as it is softer and much gentler on the hands than willow. Ideal for anyone suffering with Arthritis or other hand issues.
Tutor: Jane Welsh
Jane is an experienced basket maker and attentive teacher. Her knowledge and love of willow and rush 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
Fee: £40 (includes tuition and hot drinks throughout the day)
