During a one day workshop try your hands at a traditional skill
making your very own willow basket in a relaxed and
enjoyable atmosphere under the tuition of an experienced teacher.
Small groups of no more than eight people will learn basic
techniques. Everybody goes home with a finished basket.
The course takes place at our studio in Baurnafea,
runs from 10am – 5pm and costs 85 euro per person. All materials,
your morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea are included in the price.
We are building a new course room at our studio! There won`t be any courses at Baurnafea for a while, but we are hoping to be back in action for the second half of 2020, bigger and better!
