Broadrake – Garden Trug
Venue:Broadrake, Chapel-le-Dale Ingleton North Yorkshire LA6 3AX United Kingdom
A 2 day course to make a useful Garden Trug
For those with more experience of working with willow, this is an opportunity to make a frame basket based on a ‘long oval’ shaped frame rather than the circle frame taught in the Frame basket workshop. You will follow similar weaving methods as for the simpler round frame basket, but with greater depth and the addition of a handle to result in a traditional trug-shaped basket; essential in the garden.
You will start with a prepared frame but will be shown how to make this at the end of the workshop to make sure that all the skills are covered.
Tutor Phil Bradley has been coming to Broadrake for quite a few years now. He has a relaxed and gentle teaching approach which students appreciate.
Additional materials charge of £30 payable to the tutor on the day.
