Create your own Christmas tree from willow.

Learn how to make a willow Christmas tree using basketry techniques. We will set the main stakes and then use a rope weave to form the shape of the structure. This is a perfect way to enjoy some festive making in the run up to Christmas and decorate your home with your own creations.

Crafts using your hands can be a therapeutic and an enjoyable experience. Make your very own handmade items to give as gifts or keep for your home.

This course is suitable for all levels including beginners. All materials and tools provided.

Sarah is also running two Christmas Tree Decorations and Star workshops this autumn/winter, booking info here: Christmas Tree Decorations and Star (4 Dec), Christmas Tree Decorations and Star (5 Dec).

Sarah Gardner trained as textile designer, this sparked her interest in constructed textiles and led to her practicing basketry for the past 7 Years. She is interested in growing and foraging natural materials for making but also has a make-do-and-mend approach and is always on the look-out for man-made materials that can be adapted or useful in basket-making. This requires a lot of testing to work out the qualities of the materials and their suitability for different weaving techniques. As an advocate for the crafts Sarah also helps run a small leather accessories company and teaches and practices basketry in Brighton.
