A new weaving course for Greenwood Days.
Lewis Goldwater will be teaching this course. You’ll be weaving with split hazel to produce a strong and durable traditional split-hazel frame basket, known as a “whisket” from the Welsh Marches. 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
Lewis is an experienced basket weaver and has taught this style of basket around the country.
The course can be more physically demanding than traditional basketry so please advise if you have a history back/neck/shoulder or knee problems.
