Basket Weaving Day Course
17 Oct 2021
11-6pm all day course
Willow weaving course
Sunday 17th October | 11am to 6pm
This is the course to attend if you want to get into basket weaving. Judith Needham is a basket weaver based in Surrey whose stunning products sell for thousands. Join her in this special day long weaving class to learn how to loop, knot, plait, coil and twin to create your own (also very useful) willow basket.
If ever there was a mindful activity, basket weaving is it. Twist and weave and chat in a social, relaxing, creative session.
Over the day you will learn different techniques and really be able to spend the time making a proper item to cherish.
And why wouldn’t you get into basket weaving? You can put anything in them (I currently have gin & tonic cans in the last one I made). You can give them to your grandchildren, store your baby’s toys, or the toilet roll. What you create will be strong, pretty and useful.
Basketry is highly skilled and widely believed to be amongst the oldest crafts in the world. We’re thrilled to be able to offer a new adult class to keep the craft going for generations to come.
