Berry Basket Workshops (3 sessions)

4th Jun 2018 @ 18:00 - 21:00


This ‘berry basket’ is a version of a very old design, in fact it is considered to be one of the earliest forms of basket ever made. The basket is perfect for foraging as it is light enough to carry easily and deep enough to hold a good quantity of plants etc. These baskets are strong and will continue to be useful for years to come. Slight variations of the design and shape can be achieved.

Dates: This is a 3-session evening course running for three consecutive weeks

Tutor: Mary Cross

Mary started Organic Matters about five years ago to help people to grow vegetables in their own gardens. Initially to complement the vegetable gardening, she discovered the wonderful world of willow. After doing a few workshops herself she was completely hooked on the most versatile skill of weaving with willow. She’s kept the name as she feels it also applies to the new direction she has taken. She believes it is equally important for us to work with organic materials, not just eat organically. So the willow craft has now taken over completely! Come along and try it for yourself but be warned, working with willow is highly addictive!

Ticket Price: £90 per person including all materials and tools. Fresh coffee and a selection of ethical teas are available by donation. This course will run with a minimum of 5 people and a maximum of 7 so that everyone will get the tutor time they need to shine!
