Weave an elegant running hare from English willow, for inside or outside use - with Jo Hammond, local professional basketmaker. Check out Jo's wonderful craft work on her website http://www.johammond.net/
Using simple weaving techniques, you will discover how to create a framework, how to cover and shape the frame with freeweave and how to add the details such as ears and a tail. Jo will also guide you in selecting the willow, finishing and trimming your work.
All the materials you need are provided, although if you wish to use your own secateurs, please feel free to bring them along.
PLEASE NOTE - Willow weaving is moderately hard work and does require a firm grip, and the flexibility to bend over and squat down occasionally.
The course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience. Numbers are limited to just 12 to ensure that plenty of hands-on help is available.
Price includes all tools and materials required, plus tea, coffee and biscuits.
Secateurs if you wish to use your own
