One Day Basket Making Course at Spiddal Craft Village


This is a one day course on a date that suits you as long as I am not booked on the same day. Over the day you will get to make a bread basket or something around the size of a waste paper basket depending a little on how we get on and the number of people attending. I will also explain about the willow, how it is grown and prepared for use. 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. 


One to one: This is one to one tuition, I will also be making my own work in between showing you.

Price: €130 (two people is priced at €240)


Group one day: This is groups capped at 7 people, I would not be making my own work on these days.

Price: €270 for 3 people, it is €15  per person after this.


Hours: 9.30 to 5.30 on both days, this can be discussed if times don't suit.


Prices include materials.
