This is a great introduction to basketry and one of my personal favourites to teach. It’s a
simple basket that is made using a hoop frame. By the end of the day everybody will be
taking home a uniquely beautiful basket to be proud of. All materials and tools are supplied
and we will mainly use willow to make our baskets but will also forage a few other materials
that can be used from the woods. Tea, coffee and cake will be available throughout the day,
