    Willow weaving

Create a contemporary and increasingly fashionable willow basket. Playing with colourful willow that has been locally sourced, during our workshop, your characterful basket will grow from a Catalan platter base and flow organically into a medium size basket. Suitable for beginners and those with existing willow weaving experience.

Sarah Le Breton has an infectious enthusiasm for her craft and will inspire you with tales about our rich willow basket-making heritage. She is passionate about her willow work and has been running her own business in willow sculpting and basketwork since 2006.

All materials provided. Lunch and refreshments are included.

Please bring with you:
  • Your booking reference number
  • A notebook and pencil to make notes
  • Camera (or mobile phone for photos)
  • Secateurs
  • Gloves if you wish to wear them
Please wear old clothes and layers. Willow work is very active and you might get quite warm.

Tutor: Sarah Le Breton
