Our recently launched “Berry Basket” workshop on 7th December is already full!  By popular demand, we will be repeating this workshop on Tuesday, 13th December.

Your tutor Alisha Davidson will show you how to make a gorgeous stake and strand basket using several varieties of coloured and stripped willow.  This fabulous introduction to basketmaking is suitable for both beginners and more experienced weavers.  A picnic lunch and all materials are included in the course fee.  Full details are available here. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
