20th & 21st September 2023.
Broadrake Farm, Yorkshire Dales.
A 2 day workshop with Anna Turnbull who is a regular tutor for the Northumbria Basketry Group. Anna was lucky to have had some excellent experience on a bursary with Jenny Crisp refining skills & tips that she is keen to pass on.
This popular workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with more experience. Anna will guide you through the stages of a lunch bag-style basket, starting with a Catalan weave on the rectangular base. There will be opportunities to try out various weaves into the shaped sides that morph into an oval as the side weaving moves upwards.
One long or two short leather handles can be added in different ways to make the basket a shoulder bag or a shopper style. The final stages are to complete a border edging. Anna brings a selection of willow varieties to allow different colour choices resulting in a very varied set of finished baskets that reflect on Anna’s excellent teaching over the 2 days.
£165 plus £23 for materials
