Wednesday 4th May 2022

10am-4pm (9.30 arrival)


Using tried and tested weaving techniques, you will go home with a round-base berry basket made using Somerset willow. I will take you step by step through the process, teaching you how to start the basket from the base, adding in the uprights, weaving the sides and border, before adding in a willow handle.


Learn a new skill and some basic techniques of willow work, and take home your very own basket woven with natural materials and made with your own hands!


At the checkout: select 'Collection from Bewdley/workshop booking'. (You do not need to collect anything from me before the workshop, selecting this option just ensures you are not charged for shipping)

This basket workshop is aimed at beginners. It is a small class size of just 8 people.
