Baskets and some more basket courses in the Spring.

Enjoyable Sunday at the studio making rustic green willow baskets with a buff willow rim.

I know a lot of people wanted to do this workshop and the date didn't work for them this time so we will run it again in the Spring. Please can you get in touch with me so I can arrange a Spring date to suit you all? Thanks

We will also run another day workshop and will make a cone hanging basket, a bird feeder and a plant support all in one day. This will be after Xmas too.  Hedgerow basket making course coming too!
