Event description

Description

Learn how to weave a willow basket in this 2-day weekend course with Bríd McKeown of Black Mountain Baskets.

Bríd will teach you the art of willow weaving, guiding you through each stage in this hands on course. The class will be small so Bríd will be able to give plenty of one to one teaching. On the first day you will begin learning the basic techniques and will make a lovely bread basket.

On the second day, you will build on these skills by making a bigger basket to use for foraging or for keeping logs by the fire.

The course is suitable for complete beginners and those who have done some willow weaving before.

Bríd will also explain how the willow is grown and prepared for use, and you’ll have the chance to visit our on-site willow bed.

Bríd will provide all the tools necessary but please bring your own packed lunch. Tea and coffee facilities will be available.
