Quality basketmaking in the heart of Norfolk

Learn to make a round fruit-picking basket on a 

Basket Making Course with Julie King

The day includes all materials and use of tools - beverages, and home-made cakes. You will need to bring a packed lunch.


The one-day courses are run for adults only and take place in a community hall in Dereham, Norfolk from 9.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. The cost of the day is £70 per person.


You will find the ‘making a small fruit picking basket’ course is "full on", packing a lot into one day, and is aimed at those with patience and stamina (and a fair amount of agility) who would like to try their hand at the craft of willow basket-making. The day will teach all the techniques required to make a round basket with handle, in the traditional English style, using English willow, and will also give advice on choosing, sorting and preparing willow for use. 

There are limited spaces on each day so as to allow plenty of individual attention to be given. 


Julie, who has been working in the profession for more than 20 years will be your tutor for the day and will demonstrate and guide you through each stage of the basket-making process. At the end of the day, you will have your own basket to take home with you.
