Willow Basketry Workshop
Learn to make a traditional willow basket to take home with you, with Noah Kennedy.
On Norah’s course you will learn many traditional basket making techniques and discover some interesting new words like slath, slewing, randing and wale.
Even better you will make at least one traditional willow basket or structure to take home with you.
All materials and tools are provided, but if you have a favourite sharp pair of secateurs and a strong penknife do bring them along.
There will also be books and photographs for you to browse through and worksheets which you can take home.
“I make baskets to order that “are right in themselves and good for use”. I am interested in reviving some of the many traditional uses for willow that have been forgotten in an age of synthetic materials.” Norah Kennedy
