To make a small but useful basket using the English ‘stake and strand’ method.

  • Make a round base using a pairing weave
  • Stake up the basket sides and complete the ‘upset’
  • Complete a ‘3 rod wale’
  • Master at least one other side weave (French or English randing)
  • Complete a simple rod border

Local basket maker, Judith Needham, will take you step-by-step through the process of making a willow basket from scratch. It’s a fascinating process, you will learn lots of techniques and will leave with a useful basket you’ve made yourself. You will also never look at a basket the same way again!

Prerequisite skills include:

  • Ability to distinguish right from left
  • Counting up to 5
  • Manual dexterity

The class does make considerable demands on the hands. Those with arthritis in the hands may find it too painful.

Price: £35.00, approx. £5 for materials payable to tutor on the day
