Wild Basketry

grass basket course sussex

Wild Basketry courses are all about foraging our materials from the hedgerow and land in a sustainable way and making a beautiful, useful basket to take home with you.

Courses take place in a peaceful 70 acre private woodland near Lewes in East Sussex, UK.

🌿Check out the calendar page for all upcoming courses and images of them. My monthly-ish email will keep you informed of any new courses, and you can read FAQs here

Courses are designed for adults, although 16-18 year olds are very welcome if accompanied by a participating, responsible adult (Family Wild Pottery, however, is designed for children and young people aged 7-17).

See you in the woods!

Thank you again  for the lovely basket workshop. It was so relaxed yet focused, clear modelling with space to crack on and explore with your supportive skills and knowledge on tap. Richard, London

It occurred to me…that when sitting in a wood, in a sense you are being held in a huge, loose-woven, living basket of trees and plants, so there is a lovely symmetry in making a basket inside a natural basket. Catherine W, Sussex
