Willow basketry

Willow Basketry courses provide an introduction to the basic techniques of basket making. Once students have made a round basket, they can progressively work their way through to more complex bases and weaves. Usually two baskets will be made during a 4 or 5 week course. Students that attend further courses can progress to shopping baskets and log baskets, then venturing into oval baskets and square work. Suitable for beginners and improvers, these courses are very popular, whether you just want to attend one series or several. All willow is provided, much of it grown locally in Pembrokeshire. Students need to bring some basic tools: a good pair of secateurs, a water spray bottle, a good knife (advice given on first session), a bodkin or similar, and a weight or stone (an old iron is very suitable, or beach stone weighing 1-2kg). Materials are charged by amount of willow used; usually between £6 - £10 per basket.
