BROADRAKE – Irish Weave

Venue:
Broadrake Bunkbarn, Chapel-le-dale
Ingleton, North Yorkshire LA6 3AX

Irish Weave– new for 2022, by request!

A 2-day workshop with Anna Turnbull who is an experienced willow weaver and tutor based in Northumberland. This workshop is suitable for those with just a little previous experience of working with willow; it is not necessary to have LOTS of experience.

Anna will guide you through the stages of this basket, on an oval base in the Catalan style, to teach the Irish Weave for the sides, an economical but strong and decorative open weave. One long or two short leather handles can be added in various ways to make the basket a shoulder bag or shopper. The final stages are to complete the lovely border edging.

This is a 2 day workshop.

The price includes the organic willow, all refreshments, home-baking and lunches.

8 students max.
