Workshop Description

This hands-on workshop is for those new to weaving as well as those wanting to learn new skills. The basket you'll learn is a traditional stake-and-strand. You'll learn ancient weaving skills which you can practice at home and/or further develop with me. Weaving skills you'll learn: randing, waling, 4-rod border. I'll teach you about the tools you'll need, where to buy, and how to select and soak willow. If you want to bring a friend, get them to book asap, as places are limited (maximum 8 participants). Use of tools and locally sourced willow is provided. Snacks and foraged herb teas throughout the day are included. Bring a packed lunch. 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. Keep an eye out for other Satori workshops that inspire you! Arrive from 8:30 a.m. for a prompt 9 a.m. start. We finish at approximately 5 p.m. Kindly be advised that participants arriving more than thirty minutes after the start of the workshop will be unable to join, as the class progresses at a unified pace, and restarting would compromise the available time.
