Worcester Cathedral: The Undercroft Room
Thursday 19th May 10am-4.30pm
£95 per person (includes all materials)
Please read all the information before booking:
Working in the beautiful Undercroft room at Worcester Cathedral, you will be using tried and tested weaving techniques and will take home a round-based garden basket with an asymmetrical border, made using Somerset willow and topped with a wooden handle.
I will guide you step by step through the process, teaching you how to: start the basket by making a base, how to add the uprights into the base before weaving the sides and border, and finally adding in a wooden handle. An intensive yet fun day full of learning for beginners, in which you will take home not only this unique looking basket but also the skills to make more in the future.
This basket workshop is aimed at beginners.
This workshop and venue are accessible for wheelchair users.
As you may expect, willow weaving can be hard work on the hands, so please bear this in mind before you book.
Please wear practical clothing; we will be weaving, sawing and drilling! Please do not wear open shoes/sandals. Thank you.
There will be an hour for lunch and short breaks. Please bring your own lunch, snacks and refreshments. There is a cafe within the Cathedral or nearby Worcester City Centre.
You must be 18 years old or over to attend these courses.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. A full refund within 2 weeks of the course start date can only be obtained if we can fill the space.
