Workshop Description

For beginners and those wanting a bit more challenge, this basket is a good traditional 'stake and strand' to start learning on. This earthy and creative workshop is open to adults. It's a standalone course, but you'll learn some ancient weaving techniques. Practised straight away, you can evolve these skills at home, or come back for more lessons with me (keep an eye out for other workshops that inspire you). Weaving techniques you'll learn: randing, waling, 4-rod border. As I do in all of my workshops, I'll give you the knowledge so you'll learn about some of the tools you'll need for basketry, where to buy them and select, and how to soak willow. If you want to bring a friend with you, please get them to book asap as places are limited, early booking is advisable. A maximum of 8 people in this group. Use of tools and willow is provided. Snacks and foraged herb teas throughout the day are included; bring a packed lunch. Venue: We work from Satori, a Nature-Based Off-Grid Healing Retreat. Please bring sensible footwear and warm clothes, as the barn is open-sided. A certain level of fitness is needed, as the compost loo is a short walk away across two meadows (wild weeing is encouraged!). Times: Arrive from 8:30 am for a prompt 9 am start to 5 pm (the finish time is approximate). Kindly be advised that participants arriving more than thirty minutes after the commencement of the workshop will be unable to join, as the class progresses at a unified pace, and restarting would compromise the available time.
