6ft - very straight, clean purpurea for stakes

5ft - can be Black maul for fitching

4ft - can be Black maul for a lighter weight.

Tea and coffee will be provided.  Please bring a packed lunch and your own tools. For further information, and to apply, please contact the Northumbrian Basketry Group on either or
