Basket-making course

Nunney resident Mary Cross runs a 2-night basket-making course on Tuesdays 17 and 24 October at the Wells Mill Hub in Frome.

basket-making workshop

You’ll work with brown willow (bark on), so your baskets will have a beautiful rustic appearance and texture.

Different varieties of willow can be used to give some contrast in colour. Depending on your ability, you may be able to add a handle.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and those returning to make even better baskets and to learn new techniques.

The course is run with a small group, so that you’ll have one-to-one guidance when you need it. And you’ll take your basket home at the end of the course.

The course is held on Tuesdays 17 and 24 October from 6pm to 9.30pm at:
Remakery Frome
The Welsh Mill Hub
Park Hill Drive
Somerset BA11 2LE

Tickets for this 2-night course cost £70 per person including all materials and tools. Refreshments are provided.
