Our one day willow craft courses start at £80. (Please be aware that this course is £85.) The price includes all materials and equipment plus expert tuition. Lunch and refreshments are also provided. Attendees will leave with something beautiful, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal.
As well as taking home your own willow shopping basket, there will also be an opportunity to see how willow is grown and processed on our Somerset farm. Visitors are welcome to walk through our withy fields and enjoy the amazing variety of wildlife that the Somerset Levels has to offer.
Our willow shopping basket course
On the Oval Shopper Course you will learn many of the techniques which are essential in making a wide variety of baskets. Once the basics are mastered you can progress on to bigger and more complicated projects including sculpture work!
Bases are provided, so attendees can focus on the staking, siding, top waling and bordering. If you would like to bring along your own pre-made base, please let us know. We can then advise on the correct dimensions.
