Regular Basketry Class

Every Other Thursday

10.30am - 4.30pm

The West Hill Community Centre, Croft Road, Hastings, TN34 3JT

moving to my Basketry Studio, Bosney Farm, Grove Lane, Iden, Nr Rye, TN31 7PY for June, July and August

This will be a regular ongoing class. Making Willow Flowers This will be an opportunity to learn basketry techniques from scratch if you are a beginner, or improve your skills and experiment if you are more experienced. I hope to keep the class quite informal and relaxed, so it will be different from my day and weekend classes where I have set techniques and/or baskets that I am teaching you to make and there is always the pressure to finish by the end of the day/weekend. In these regular classes there will be more freedom for you to make different things and come up with your own ideas. I will be on hand to teach techniques and give advice when needed and to provide materials. I will also come up with ideas and suggestions of things to try. You could make baskets, try sculptural work, make smaller decorations or experiment with different materials for example. (My main expertise is willow work but I do know a bit about using other materials. See my blog for example)   Cost: As usual there will be graded price structure for the classes. You can book a block of three classes here. Buy tickets for Regular Basketry Class - three sessions or Buy tickets for Regular Basketry Class - one session (materials will be charged extra depending on what you use. As a guide this will be around £5 for a small basket with a handle)   It is possible to come on a drop in basis but please contact me at least 4 days in advance to make sure there is space and to give me time to prepare enough materials.   Contact Julie on 07973508382 Email juliebaskets@gmail.com
