Glen Dye offers you the perfect setting to be able to build on a new skill of craftsmanship, and to leave the class with something you have made. All classes are designed to be equal parts challenging, engaging, rewarding and fun. Most are suitable for all ages.
Weaving is an ancient craft as old as history itself. On each of our willow weaving workshops, you’ll learn time-honoured techniques and take home a sustainable souvenir made with your own hands.
There are several different options available, each resulting in a different build of basket. Enjoyable and therapeutic, weaving is a creative and collaborative way to experience mindfulness while immersed in the great outdoors.
Your teacher on this course is Helen Jackson who is a member of The Basketmakers’ Association and the Heritage Crafts Association. She integrates traditional techniques of willow basketmaking with new ideas and form, using willow, grasses and rush.
