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
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.
