HILARY BURNS - ITALIAN MARKET BASKET - 7th & 8th September

Venue: Yalberton Barn], TQ4 7PE

The main attraction is learning the rope handle and border. These are tricky and very different from the rod borders. It's not a course for absolute beginners as there is too much to learn, plus there is a final stage of weaving in the decorative outer weave and a final roped foot. Times are 9.30am for a 10am start on Saturday and each day will run until 5pm.

Cost: £120 - this includes materials, refreshments and a soup lunch.

Hilary is organising this directly so please contact her to book on 01803 553144 or email hilary@hilaryburns.com

ASH SPLINT BASKETS

It is felt that there might not be enough interest in this basket amongst our members to run a BSW course. Steve Tomlin will be teaching this course again soon at Yurtworks - Tim Hutton’s place near Bodmin.

We will publish full details of this course when we have it and you would need to book directly with Tim Hutton (timhutton@yurkworks.co.uk)

OAK SWILL BASKET with OWEN JONES - Spring 2020

Owen has indicated that he would be willing to travel down to the South West to teach the Oak Swill Basket.

No date has been set but it would be good to know if we have enough interest in this basket to run a course.

Some of you may have seen the Victorian Farm series on the TV and it was Owen who demonstrated making the basket in that series. If you would be interested in this 3-day course, please send your name to Richard (windrushw@aol.com)
