Bramble basketry is our most popular wild basket-making course. At the end of this  course you’ll leave with all the knowledge you need to make a frame basket from start to finish with foraged materials.

A perfect basket for taking on a foraging jaunt for berries, mushrooms, etc as it hangs comfortably on your forearm. Also great for storing eggs, garlic and that kind of thing in your kitchen. You’ll start seeing those pesky brambles in a whole new light.

We’ll also have time set aside for connecting to the natural surroundings, making the weekend a nourishing as well as a learning experience. Suitable for all levels, including beginners. Groups are kept small to allow for individual attention and a satisfying learning experience.

Picking the bramble prior to making the basket made me feel really connected to the finished product. I also felt the achievement of mastering the skill of turning an unwanted plant into something of beauty and use. Meike W, Croydon
