Basket Weaving Course

Learn to Weave a Willow Basket in a Day!

Join Wild Harvest for a fun, informative day-course to learn to weave a beautiful round willow basket. On the morning you will create the base using a pairing weave and then insert the uprights before breaking for lunch (bring your own). On the afternoon you will learn a new weave called three rod wale, which you will use to create the walls. Finally finishing off with a pretty border, some people may get to add a handle, you will get to take your complete basket home that evening! What will you put in yours? During the day, Di will talk to you about this magical and versatile material and also explain how the skills you learn in the day can be taken into the garden to make planters and fences. All our willow weaving courses sell out so do get booked up today, our basket weaving course is the best value day course in the country. You will make a more complex prettier basket for less money at Wild Harvest as our mission is always to be affordable and not to make these crafts exclusive. Some courses will charge you £120 for a lesser experience and product! If there is’nt a date to suit please email in to hello@wildharvest.org and we can set a new date.
