Service Description

Discover the skills and learn the techniques for making a traditional frame basket, known as a "whisket". Over two days you will prepare all of the components, straight from rods of hazel, with a minimum of tools, before assembling them into a whisket of your own creating. Please note- this workshop requires upper body strength. (The preparation of split hazel is physically demanding, more so than traditional willow basketry. The process is probably unsuitable for people with a history of back/ neck/shoulder or knee problems although knee pads will be provided and alternative, less demanding methods may be used.) Wearing of long trousers is advisable. Suitable for all levels.
