Hedgerow Basket Workshop

Come and spend a day in our woodland workshop, learning how to weave a traditional frame basket using hazel, willow and an assortment of hedgerow weaving materials.

These frame baskets are fantastic for foraging wild foods. The woven structure allows your hedgerow harvest to breathe and the rigid frame offers protection as you roam through the woods.  Once you’ve mastered this particular basket you’ll realise that many different materials can be used in addition to traditional willow.

We’ve seen them made with clematis vine, honeysuckle, ivy, brambles, split hazel and even roots from coniferous trees meaning that you should be able to quickly knock up a useful basket from local materials in most outdoor environments you visit.

All tools, materials and hot drinks are provided but you must bring your own food for the day.

Arrival 9am sharp on the Sunday morning. We'll finish around 5pm.

In 2020 this is a standalone workshop but is also part of the Bush Crafts 5 Day Workshop bringing together three of the most important woodland crafts - bark work, carving and basketry.  Each subject is available to attend as an individual workshop or as a continuous five day craft course starting at 9am Wednesday August 19th and finishing around 5pm Sunday 23rd August.
