Event : Split hazel basketry

Event details

  • Price: £210
  • Topics: Wood and willow

Make a beautiful basket from hazel on this two day course. You will employ very old techniques developed over generations to split the hazel into thin flexible strips that are used to weave the basket.

This course is a master class in green hazel working that will leave you with a huge respect for the humble tree as well as a wonderful basket that will look like no other around. These baskets are rarely seen but there are many traditions of them being made across Wales and the borders and right down through Europe to the Mediterranean.
