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.
