A first foray into the world of willow basketry!
- 150 British pounds£150
- Home of Larkswold: Adlestrop
An intensive day, aimed at beginners, using locally-grown, natural willow. Come and have fun making your own unique and useful basket with Clare from Warwickshire Willow. Learn how to make a round basket base using traditional ‘stake and strand’ techniques before adding uprights and weaving the sides of your basket using a 3-rod wale. To complete your basket, you will create a simple trac-border and be shown how to add a willow handle. This is basketry Larkswold style which means copious daily baked cake, freshly ground coffee and a plethora of tea choices (and alternative milk options). We know you will work hard during the day, so lunch will be lovingly prepared and hopefully refresh you ready to finish your masterpiece in the afternoon. All set in the lovely Larkswold Studio in Adlestrop with close proximity to Daylesford & plenty of resturants and B&Bs in Stow on the Wold.
