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 uses traditional basket weaves around the base of the support, to make it really strong with long base rods to insert the support securely into the ground. A different weave is used further up the support and at the end, a decorative top knot will tie in the top rods altogether. Very useful for your sweet peas or beans.
Phil will guide the group through all the processes to make sure that everyone masters each step before moving onto the next stage.
Please wear layers of warm clothing & sturdy shoes since you will be working in an outside barn and you never know what the weather will be like, even in May!
10 students max.
