During this workshop you will make a traditional Welsh framed basket, called the Cyntell, which was an agricultural basket used for crop harvesting and carrying animal feed.
A pre-formed and dried willow hoop for the basket rim and some pre-formed ribs will be provided to get you started. You will have the chance to whittle additional ribs from split fresh willow as well as weave the basket with prepared willow.
Suitable for all levels – some knife work is involved.
All tools and equipment will be provided.
Places are limited to eight participants per event and must be booked in advance.
Workshop Fee: £75 per person
NB. There is an additional £20 per workshop for materials, to be paid in cash on the day.
Additional willow will be available for you to purchase for future makes.
