Willow Weaving – Little Peg Basket – 2 Places Left

Willow Weaving - Little Peg Basket - 2 Places Left

Weave a sweet little round peg basket with a bow handle. Suitable for keeping your pegs handy for wash day or alternatively an opportunity to make a simple round lid for the previous two-day Linen Basket course.

This course offers the opportunity to learn traditional skills in ‘Stake and Strand Basketry’.
We will use the paring weave in the base, waling and randing in the sides and finish with a rod border and handle. There will be a variety of natural colours for you to incorporate into the sides of your peg basket.

Hanging out the washing will never again feel like a chore!

This is the second course in a run of five days of laundry themed basket weaving.

This course is ideal for complete beginners or those wanted to practice their willow weaving skills.

All tools and materials provided. Please wear warm old clothing.

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

Fee: £65 (includes tuition and hot drinks throughout the day)

There is an additional fee of £10 for the materials. Please bring this in cash and pay to the tutor on the day.
