Hazel can be split into strong thin rods to make beautiful baskets. Ruth spent time researching traditional hazel basketry in Wales and has been teaching the techniques since 2005. It is so great that she can come to Moreton Wood to share her knowledge and skills. Ruth has also produced a documentary dvd showing the skills, techniques and history of Hazel basketmaking, that is available from the Basketmakers Association website.

This course is suitable for people with some knowledge of greenwood working and using hand tools. You will learn how to peel and rive coppiced hazel and to dress weavers and ribs to make a small hazel basket.

All tools and materials will be provided.

Hot drinks and snacks also provided around the fire. Please bring your own pack lunch.
