Baskets are the ultimate biodegradable and sustainable container. Handy for shopping, gathering herbs and flowers in the garden, carrying gardening tools, storing potatoes and onions, the list is endless.

Creating your own willow baskets is fun and easy. Get into basket making by taking a single course or get really proficient and make larger baskets for your own use. Baskets are something everyone loves and they make useful, beautiful gifts.

Consider the fun you could have learning to make your own baskets. Join one of our basket making courses – bring a friend along or come alone.
