You will learn how to make an oval base using the traditional stake and strand method and have a go at using French rand and German wale weaves.

This workshop would suit anyone who has previously woven a willow basket.

A selection of willow colours will be available.  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.
