Richard Kerwood
This course is fully booked.
Why not try one of our other courses?

Monday 27th July to Wednesday 29th July

This willow course is aimed at beginners and improvers, and we will start by making two round basket bases - the worst we will turn into a flower and the best we will keep for our basket! Whilst the basket base dries we will explore other fun things to do with willow (except for 3D sculpture as I haven't a clue about this). On day two we will stake up and work on our rope weave basket. The more elaborate constructions may continue into day three or you might make a second basket, more dragonflies, snails, fish, sunflowers, hearts, birdfeeders and stars for your garden. All tools and equipment are provided but an apron is advised. You will also need two fully functioning strong hands.
There will be a materials cost of £15 per student.
rope weave RICHARD KERWOOD has 20 years experience of growing, weaving and teaching willow. On reflection he should have made chocolates, because if it goes a bit wonky at least you can eat the evidence. Nevertheless, he remains calm, patient and happy most of the time and is looking forward to getting you hooked on the willow weaving drug.
