A development course for students who have already completed a beginners course, and who have a basic understanding of basketry. Using Somerset willow, master the skills required to make a great oval base, then choose from numerous recipes or create your own basket design. You should expect to complete at least two baskets on this course depending on the size and complexity of the design. The course is limited to a maximum of 8 so Sarah can give the support needed for you to develop the skills and confidence to progress.

Sarah Webb is a highly skilled traditional and contemporary willow artist who was apprenticed to a traditional Somerset basket maker.
