• This year we are going to be at Kindrogan Field Studies Centre which is a venue we have used before. 28-30 October 2016. Our three courses are as follows

    Carole Beavis will be teaching Willow Sculpture. She is going to teach the making of willow animals.

    Sue Kirk will be teaching hazel handled baskets.

    Tim Johnson will be teaching a course in contemporary basketry called 'Freecoiling and Bundlesticks'. This will use a wide variety of natural and recycled materials, some of which will be gathered at the venue.

    Our AGM will be at 8pm on Saturday 29 October at Kindrogan.

    Please contact Dawn Susan on dawn@hebrideanbaskets.co.uk for an application form and more details on the courses.

  • One of our foremost basketmakers Lise Bech was given a Silver award in the Craft and Design 2015 awards. Here is a link to her page on the craftmaker website and she encourages the rest of us to get pages too.
