Introduction to rope-coil weave
2 day workshop
7th + 8th 
September - FULLY BOOKED
5th + 6th October - NEW DATE 


On this creative and explorative two day course, you will create a sculptural basket using the rope-coil weave technique. Weaving in a small group of just 5-6 people, Sarah will guide you through each process to make your very own piece of willow basketry inspired artwork. 

This textural weave is developed slowly and makes for a calm and meditative experience. The form emerges slowly as layers of willow wind their way around the piece, building on those before them. 

The aim of this creative course is to give you the space, encouragement and skills to develop a spirit of play and discovery as you weave - making changes and creative decisions as the work develops. 

This workshop caters to anyone wishing to connect with their creative side, and for those who want to explore both technique and artistic expression, and it encourages a flexible outlook of letting go and allowing a piece of work take its own course with you as its guide.

I have been on two Hopewood Basket weaving courses so far and would definitely recommend them. Sarah and Marcus are great teachers and really lovely people. They explain each step clearly and genuinely want everyone to produce something they are pleased with.  All those on both of my courses went away with something far better than they could ever have imagined being able to create. It’s a really enjoyable way to spend a day learning something new or building on your skills.
