Marianne from Crafty Basketry will be conducting an introductory course. You will be weaving little hanging baskets for plants or jewellery with 5 rods of willow. There are two techniques that will be shown, which can be applied to other projects also. Children as young as 8 as well as adults can take part.
With nearly 15 years’ experience as a basket maker, Marianne van Niekerken has developed a style that is instinctive and organic, using techniques that have been passed on through the generations. She takes specific commissions, sells baskets at markets and fairs and does repairs on her looms.
