All basket making

Find basket making courses and workshops around the UK in our hand-picked and beautiful directory.

An age-old and highly useful skill, basket making is also a hugely therapeutic activity to slow the mind and focus on the hands.

Not all baskets are the same…

Discover British basket weavers teaching basket weaving the traditional way. We select makers to list with us who combine the best in authentic British craftsmanship with simple and timeless designs that sit well in the most contemporary home. Because not all baskets are the same.

In our book, a one-off piece lovingly crafted in english willow is worth so much more than something mass produced. Baskets that are crafted the authentic way give years of pleasure and only get better with age.

Why not try your hand at basket weaving yourself and book up one of the basket making courses and workshops listed?
