Workshop information

About the course

Join me for this beginner's basketmaking course where you'll be introduced to the tools and techniques of the heritage craft of willow weaving. 

I'll show you how to make your own small round basket, where you'll learn how to make a round base, stake up the basket, weave the sides, turn down the border and add a handle. The basket is a perfect size for foraging berries, collecting eggs or storing household bits and bobs. 

About the venue

The workshop will take place in my studio at Maws Craft Centre in Jackfield, Shropshire. You'll get a chance to have a look around my workshop, including some of my stock items, commissions, work in progress, and my mini-library of weaving books. 

Maws Craft Centre is a bustling creative hub, just along the river from Ironbridge. There's lots of artist studios and gallery spaces for you to have a wander around during your lunch break. You can also explore further afield, and go for a walk along the River Severn and take in the spectacular views of the historic Ironbridge Gorge.
