The Ore Centre, 455 Old London Road, Hastings, East Sussex, TN35 5BH

Thursday Mornings 10am til 1pm

from 26th May 2016

The regular weekly class will continue for another six weeks before a summer break but it is planned to continue again in the autumn.

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. The full cost each class is £25 for those with professional salaries, concession rate for those who are unwaged is £18. If you are earning something inbetween, you pay something inbetween. You decide.

Places are limited so please make sure you let me know is you want to come

I will also give a reduced rate if you book the block of six classes in advance. (£125 – £90)
