BROADRAKE – English Basket MakingBroadrake | Chapel-le-Dale Ingleton | LA6 3AX
September 11 @ 9:45 am - September 12 @ 4:30 pm
Tutor Phil Bradley lives in NW Cumbria where he grows his own sustainable willow for basketry, garden items as well as bird & animal sculptures, all popular workshop topics.
This is a great opportunity to learn a traditional heritage skill to make the familiar ‘log basket’ type of basket, but not so large that it won’t fit in a car to take home.
Phil will guide the group through all the processes to make sure that everyone masters the traditional basketry weaves for the base, the sides and the border. His gentle humour and excellent teaching style will make sure that everyone successfully creates their very own basket after two days of good company, laughter and excellent food.
The organic willow, all refreshments and lunches on both days are included in the price and all the tools required will be provided.
