Willow weaving at Deepdale Farm


Learn some basic skills and techniques of willow weaving, whilst creating a decorative willow flower or boat tray in our sociable workshops, suitable for beginners.

Join The Coddiwomplers at our picturesque setting on Deepdale Farm to learn the basics of willow weaving. Emma and Stuart are teachers and basket weavers based in South Norfolk. Stuart has been honing his craft for over 15 years, with Emma joining as apprentice a few years ago. She is now a fully-fledged member of the team and together they provide a fun, supportive environment in which to learn the craft of willow weaving.

The morning workshop will focus on the techniques required for weaving and basketry, and you'll be taught how to craft a decorative willow flower. These look great hanging on a wall, or add a stem and plant it in the garden. The afternoon workshop will again cover the basics and then you'll be taught how to craft a decorative boat tray which looks great serving up some bread rolls or fruit.

Each workshop is three-hours long, so join us for either or both. The workshops are suitable for beginners, so no previous experience of willow weaving is necessary. However, some manual dexterity and hand strength will be required. Minimum age 18. Maximum 10 participants in each session.

Teas, coffees and biscuits will be provided.

The course is held at Downs Barn, recently modified to allow us to host rural craft courses. Depending on weather, the course will be taught in the open air grass courtyard or under the shelter of the charming barn. Either way the venue will be well ventilated. Please dress suitably for the weather.

No accommodation is included with this course. We would recommend staying at Deepdale Camping & Rooms, which offer excellent self-catering rooms and camping for tents, campervans and motorhomes.
