About this course

Two day Weekend Course
Saturday 28th of September

Sunday 29th September

Materials and tools provided

On this two day course you will make a round basket with a handle, using traditional English techniques with Somerset and locally grown willow. The basket you make will be suitable for grocery shopping or for harvesting fruit and vegetables. This course is aimed at those who have not experienced willow work before, or who would like to improve on basic skills.

You will find basketry is full on, a lot of learning is packed into the two days. Patience and stamina is required and it is a fairly physical activity. Advice is given on selecting, sorting and preparing materials for use, as well as information on where to source your own.

Visiting Dartington Hall

At our 1,200 acre estate, based in South Devon, there’s plenty to explore – from the natural beauty of the grounds, to our visitor attractions and year-round events programme. You can also make a stay of it with our historic hotel or campsite, and enjoy award-winning food and drink in our cafes and restaurants.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
