BROADRAKE – Frame Basket MakingBroadrake | Chapel-le-Dale Ingleton | LA6 3AX
April 17 - April 18
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.
Over two days, Phil will guide the group through all the processes to make sure that everyone masters the traditional basketry weaves to create a lovely willow frame basket, one of the earliest basket forms.
His gentle humour and excellent teaching style will make sure that everyone successfully creates their very own basket to take home. There may be sufficient time to start a 2nd smaller frame basket to complete at home.
All the tools required will be provided and the organic willow, all refreshments and lunch on both days is included in the price.
Broadrake is set in a stunning landscape in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with views of Ingleborough, Whernside and Ribblehead Viaduct.
