Working with mainly brown willow (bark on) you will make a round stake and strand basket, this gives them quite a rustic appearance and texture.  Different varieties of willow can be used to give some contrast in colour.  Depending on your ability you may be able to add a handle.  This workshop is suitable for beginners and those returning to make even better baskets and to learn new techniques.  

Please note there is a small charge for materials of £3.50 per week - collected throughout the course by Mary.
