Basket Weaving with Maggie Cooper

March 5 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Make your own beautiful hedgerow basket from natural materials in a variety of colours.

Learn how to weave a traditional basket, making use of the decorative colours of different willow varieties. A place on this day course would be a great gift to give someone who loves crafting, or you could make a basket to give as a gift, filled with food or flowers? (*photographs show baskets made on the course by a beginner, not by Maggie!)

Course fee includes all materials and a delicious lunch from The Yard Cafe of a hand-made sausage roll (or veggie alternative on request) with salads and a piece of cake.

Maggie Cooper has been making baskets and studying the ancient art of basketmaking for nearly four decades. She is one of the foremost artists in this craft working in Britain today.

Maggie works with locally-sourced materials in search of English forms. Her work includes large-scale art installations in public spaces, reconstructing historical functional baskets, and commissions for repairs and specialist basketworking.
