Craft Workshops in the village

Weekend Basket Making Course at Spiddal Craft Village

This is a two day weekend course consisting of Saturday and Sunday. Over the weekend you will get to make a bread basket on the first day and something around the size of a waste paper basket on the second day. I will also explain about the willow, how it is grown and prepared for use. There will be a maximum of 7 people on the course.

There will be detailed class notes sent on after covering all weaves practised on the course and also notes on the willow process from start to finish. 

Hours: 9.30 to 5.30 on both days.

Price: €140 including materials.

Accommodation is not included in this course, you will find an accommodation list on my website.
