Basketry Courses at The Natural Basketry Studio

January 2021 – Covid 19 update

Due to the pandemic all courses based at the studio are cancelled until further notice.

If you are interested in making a basket yourself and learning more about basketry techniques and the natural materials you can use to create them, why not try a basketry course? Basketry is a slow and mindful craft which helps you meaningfully  engage with the physical world around you and connect with nature. My basketry courses focus on sustainability with all materials sourced from within the UK or using plants which are easy to grow in your own garden.

Courses run from my spacious and comfortable studio at the Turner Dumbrell Workshops in Ditchling, Sussex, which can accommodate up to eight students. There is a cosy wood burning stove to keep people warm while they weave in winter and triple aspect windows and skylights for excellent light. Tools, materials, hot and cold drinks, home made cake, fruit and snacks are included. 

I run one and two day courses for beginners and improvers and occasionally host intermediate and advanced level courses with visiting tutors from the UK and abroad.

One Day Courses (10am – 4.30 pm) Cost: £70

Two Day Courses (10am – 4.30pm) Cost £140 

Family Workshops (2hr sessions) £10.00 per child, £5.00 accompanying adult
