What's on

Hazel basket workshop – SOLD OUT – get in touch to be added to waiting list.

By Oxfordshire Basketmakers
St Nicholas Church Hall, Elsfield Road, Old Marston OX3 0PR

This workshop, run by Suz Williams, will introduce you to the endangered heritage craft of split hazel basketry. 

There are only a handful of makers left in the country and by learning this craft you will be contributing to the continuation of this knowledge.

Each weaver for the basket is cleaved from a hazel stick and the ribs are each hand crafted. In this workshop Suz will have prepared all the weavers for us but you will be able to try preparing a few yourself.

We will be using willow hoops for the frame/ribs of the basket and some plant fibres as inserts.

Workshop fee: £90 per person

Materials cost: £15 per person to be paid in cash on the day to the tutor
