I run workshops on the Llŷn Peninsula on a regular basis. These are usually held at the very beautiful Felin Uchaf Centre (see http://www.felinwales.org/)
The basketmaking and weaving workshops provide an opportunity to spend a day being creative, to have fun and to enjoy making something new and useful. Some courses are specifically aimed at those who have some experience and who want to improve their skills.
I also provide private tuition on a one to one or one to two basis, and can run workshops for organised groups - please get in touch to discuss.
Spring 2021 Workshops
I hope to run a few workshops this spring, whenever Covid regulations allow indoor group activities to restart.
If you would like to register interest, please get in touch.
Themes will include:
Make a small, round basket perfect for collecting berries and fruit. You will learn the traditional stake and strand method of making a basket and how to insert a handle. Suitable for beginners. Those with more experience can learn new weaves and designs.
1 day - £60
Learn how to make baskets & platters using the Zarzo method, weaving the base, sides & handles all in one. A relatively easy basket to produce with amazing results. A square zarzo basket could be the focus for those who have already familiar with the zarzo technique.
1 day - £60
Make a spiral willow wigwam, just in time to use in the garden for supporting runner beans or sweet peas!
1/2 day - £30
