Courses

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.

As soon as the lifting of restrictions allows we will be back with workshop dates!

If you want to organise a basket making course yourself, for instance with a group of friends or colleagues, and have a suitable venue, Heike will travel a reasonable distance to teach and she will bring all required materials and tools. 

If you are a community group in Counties Carlow or Kilkenny, you can apply to the ETB Community Education Service for funding of tuition fees. Contacts are Siobhan O`Brien for Kilkenny and Fiona Dunne for Carlow.
