During this workshop, you will learn the unusual technique of weaving willow into a rope to form a unique rope coil basket.
You will also learn how to use packing to add shape and form and can experiment with natural and dyed willow to add colour.
This rope coil basket workshop is suitable for all levels. All tools and equipment will be provided.
Justine originally trained as an engineer, and worked in the charity and education sectors, before becoming a partner in West Wales Willows with her husband, Alan. On their smallholding in Carmarthenshire, they grow around 250 varieties of willow and sell it as cuttings and rods during the winter for others to grow, as well as selling their own willow products and sharing her expertise through workshops.
Places are limited to eight participants per event and must be booked in advance.
