This two day course is a fantastic opportunity to join New Forest based basket maker and teacher Louise Brown in order to learn how to make a willow basket.
Our two day course allows you enough time to make a good sized, practical basket with refinements and embellishments. You will be able to make either a Round Shopper basket, Asymmetric basket with a wooden handle or Small Log /storage basket.
Louise Brown first came into contact with willow work when she witnessed a grass basket weaving demonstration at Eden Project. She was immediately inspired to learn the craft. She undertook training at The City Lit College in Covent Garden, West Dean College near Chichester, and Westhope Craft College in Shropshire where in 2017 she completed the City & Guilds course in Basketry.
Louise is passionate about sharing her knowledge of basket making and is a popular tutor delivering tuition in several venues across the South.
