Sir Harold Hillier Gardens
Willow Workshop - Large Apple-Basket
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2022
10.00am to 4.00pm
In this two-day workshop you will learn traditional basketmaking techniques to create your own willow basket with Louise Brown.
Using beautiful Somerset-grown willow, you will first learn how to create a round base, then how to stake and weave the sides, and finally create a durable edge border and a robust handle.
The basket will be suitable for gathering apples or any other items where a strong basket is required.
No previous basketmaking experience is necessary for this workshop, but if you have worked with willow previously you may feel more confident tackling this two-day workshop.
