By the end of the day, you will have the skills and knowledge to create a basket from start to finish. You’ll also receive an electronic guide book as a reference to give you the inspiration and confidence to recreate your own again at home! Knowledge required: This is a beginners workshop, no previous basket weaving experience necessary. Just bring yourself! Class inclusions: - All materials and tools are provided for on the day to create a small basket to take home. - Electronic guide book.
