Nest Baskets


Make a random nest basket with or without hazel or driftwood handle.

Use beautiful steamed or white willow to achieve the perfect balance of grip and fluidity of weave.

The perfect basket for a beginner or for those with some basketry experience who want to explore random weave (which is not random at all!)

An easily achievable basket in a day and a one which gets easier as the day progresses.

Skill Level : Beginner/Intermediate

Tutor: Rachel Poole


Our full day willow craft courses are priced from £80 and include all materials, lunch and refreshments. You will come away with something beautiful, strong, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal to you.

As well as taking home your own willow creation, you can also see the willow being grown and processed at first hand, taking in one of Somerset’s oldest crafts. Visitors are welcome to walk through the withy fields and enjoy the amazing variety of wildlife that the Somerset Levels has to offer.

At the end of your session you will have the opportunity to purchase willow, tools or books to help you master the trade at home should you wish.
