Basket Making Workshop at Airfield Estate
Come explore your creative side and discover one on the world’s oldest crafts. In this beginner basket-making course, Ronan and Elaine from Newgrange Willow Design will introduce you to the basic techniques and skills of willow weaving with step by step instructions. By the end of the session you will have completed your own basket.
Choose your own design of basket, however if you are just beginning something round is the best option! You will be amazed that once you are shown how, the simple weaves will combine as you create your very own masterpiece.
The basketry willow you will be using is 100% Irish and grown at Newgrange Co. Meath. It comes in a variety of colours and sizes so your basket can have a nice blend of colours.
