Basket Making Courses


About our courses…

I am very pleased to be able to offer this one day course. Participants spend a pleasant day learning how to make a round shopping basket with a roped handle to take home and keep. Held in the lovely Parish Hall, Walnut Hill in Surlingham, Norfolk NR14 7AG (about four miles south of Norwich). I will provide tools and materials, tea and coffee and expert tuition. It is an enjoyable day and you will learn a life long skill. We commence 9.30 and finish around 4pm

For those that have already attended a course there is the opportunity to learn how to make a small log basket with under foot base and twisted handles.

Price is £75 per person. You can also buy a course as a gift voucher at my online shop as the perfect gift for that creative loved one*.

“I just wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed the course on Saturday – it was so great. I absolutely love my basket (everyone at home is v. impressed!!) and I though you were a fantastic teacher and leader – really skilled and engaging. The pace was pitched perfectly to allow all of us to practice and make progress on our baskets with plenty of support where necessary. AND loved the cakes…!

I am thrilled to have some basic basket making skills and hope to make more in the future.

I will recommend you to everyone!

Thanks so much for the wonderful day.”
