Event description
A chance to learn the basics of willow weaving, in the company of expert Jane Wilkinson

About this Event

This is a chance to experience a one-day introduction to the art of willow weaving, on a cold and frosty February Saturday. You will be mainly making an attractive nut bowls, but with opportunities to expand into other woven artefacts. You will learn to use the tools of the basket maker and the art of soaking and preparing willow and will have the opportunity to incorporate winter foliage into your piece, such as hazel, birch and dogwood. We will discuss how to identify and collect these hedgerow material, and then assess their suitability for weaving alongside willow. This will allow you to add a variety of colours and textures to your work.

Jane Wilkinson is a willow artisan who specialises in the design and creation of traditional and contemporary willow baskets, bespoke willow structures for gardens and specialist crafts for the bushcraft enthusiast. Her beautiful work can be seen on her website www.specialbranchbaskets.com
