Due to popular demand we are now offering the Willow Backpack basket. This practical basket can be used for foraging, shopping or even carrying your picnic on a walk.
Because there are more complex techniques involved than some other baskets, this willow backpack workshop is more suitable if you have some experience of willow weaving (or attended any of our other willow workshops).
During the two day workshop you will learn how to weave the D-shaped base, add upright stakes, weave the sides with 3-rod wale and French rand weaves and put on a border.
**This workshop does not include the straps. You can source your own or purchase leather straps from the tutor on the day**
Take home your own unique and beautiful willow backpack basket.
All tools and equipment will be provided.
Places are limited to eight participants per event and must be booked in advance.
Workshop Fee: £80 per person
NB. There is an additional £15 per person for materials, to be paid in cash on the day (straps are additional to this or bring your own).
