Scottish Craft School, Dunblane.
Friday 1st and 8th March.
Join master basket weaver Anna Liebmann for two fun and sociable days of beginners willow basketry and create a round or oval willow masterpiece.
We’ll start with a dried hoop onto which you’ll attach wooden ribs to create a basket or tray form, or another hoop to create a handle, using soaked flexible willow. We’ll build up our baskets using successive weaving, adding and shaping of more ribs to create whatever shape and size of basket you would like.
Beginners Willow Basketry is suitable for both beginners and improvers. It’s a great place to start if you’ve never woven before, or if you’ve taken one of Anna’s classes with us already this is a brilliant additional skill to add to your basket weaving repertoire.
- All tools and materials are included in the course cost, but you are welcome to bring your own materials to try weaving with.

- All of our classes are suitable for over 16s, younger crafters may be accommodated if accompanied by a participating adult but please contact us before booking.
