Come spend a couple of happy hours learning all about growing harvesting and storing willow! During this workshop you will get hands on and learn the correct way to coppice, how to store it so it is good quality, how to process it in various ways, as well as taking home 20 cuttings of up to 5 varieties to start your own coppice at home. Please wear wellies, warm clothes, a waterproof coat, and bring sharp secateurs and 5 plant labels and string.
Set in the gorgeous eco-pod at Lammas, come and make a willow reindeer, Christmas tree, or stag’s head trophy! This is an ideal chance to develop your skills and take home a festive willow creation. All materials included, just bring secateurs and a packed lunch. Only 4 places on this course to allow social distancing.
Basketry Courses with Learning Pembrokeshire
Learn traditional Stake and Strand basketry, suitable for absolute beginners and improvers.
All my basketry courses are based in Adult Learning Venues in Haverfordwest, Tenby, Narberth and Fishguard. Starting with round baskets, I then work with each student individually to progress their skills in their direction of interest.
Classes usually run in 5 week blocks, enabling people to try it out, or continue developing their basketmaking skills over time. At the end of each course, you will leave with one or two handmade functional baskets.
