Using tried and tested willow basketry techniques, you will work in a small group of 8, guided by two tutors, Sarah and Marcus.

This course is designed for beginners.

Courses will involve working at many levels, including bending down to the floor, working on laps or standing, and working seated at tables. If you have any physical difficulties in any of these areas, we advise you to contact us before booking; some alternative arrangements may be possible but we can not guarantee this.
