Workshop information

About the course

Learn how to make your own rustic frame basket.

During the course, you'll be introduced to the basic tools and techniques of willow weaving. You'll learn how to make and connect a pair of wreaths to act as the basket frame, and then add ribs to weave around. I can also show you how to add decorative handles, including bindings and rope coil. This basket is perfect to take out foraging, collecting fruit and vegetables from your garden, or even go shopping with. 

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.
