This 2 day course will be an opportunity to immerse yourself in the skills and weaves that will make up a beautiful, open-topped willow back-pack. Starting with a Catalan style base, there will be opportunities to learn several new weaves according to your skills. These back-packs are wonderful to use in the garden to gather fruit, for a visit to the beach or the market. They are hard wearing, long lasting and mendable, sustainable making at its best! You can choose from leather or canvas webbing for your straps, and you will be shown how to use the tools to attach everything with rivets and buckles, to give your own backpack a beautiful finish. The 2 days cost £145 which includes all willow and refreshments and is payable here online to secure your place. The finished back packs will need straps from leather or canvas and buckles which you can buy from me at the time (cost £15-20) or you are welcome to supply your own buckles and leather straps or non leather alternatives but do chat to me first about sizing before you buy.

Cancellation Policy
