Heritage Workshops and Lectures; Spring 2013
Basket Weaving Workshop
SUN 3 FEBRUARY, 10am-4pm
Sue Kirk uses Somerset and locally grown willow to create a range of traditional baskets, and now it’s your turn!
Spend the day making a traditional frame or ribbed basket from willow. These baskets were originally made by unskilled basket makers, using materials from the hedgerow, and would have been used for gathering foods. Learn how to form a hoop, then split willow for the ‘ribs’, use a knife to ‘slype’ the rods, and secure the structure using a ‘rand’ weave. Take home a tough, light weight and longlasting basket at the end of the day – as well as the skills to make more!
The workshop is suitable for beginners and all materials will be provided. Lunch will also be provided; please advise us of any dietary requirements when booking.
£60 per person
