Frame Baskets

Frame baskets are one of the earliest forms of basket shape, and the position of the curved ribs will dictate the overall depth of the basket, from almost flat, as a platter, to deeper, for a lovely fruit bowl, or gathering basket for the garden. The soaked and mellow willow will behave well as you guide it in and out of the framework, starting with decorative weaves to fasten in the main ribs.

You will gain an understanding of how the willow behaves as you weave the baskets and after the final trimming up you will have a useful basket you will be proud of to take home. There is nothing that looks so good as fresh bread or fruit on a shallow frame basket, logs or even a pair of cats in an English basket.

Phil’s gentle, relaxed teaching style will guide you through the various weaving patterns for the different parts of the basket and the frame, ribs, the body weaves and a handle for the Frame basket. Organic Willow provided.

Willow Plant Supports

This uses traditional basket weaves around the base of the support, to make it really strong with long base rods to insert the support securely into the ground. A different weave is used further up the support and at the end, a decorative top knot will tie in the top rods altogether. Very useful for your sweet peas or beans.

Line and Wash Watercolours with John Harrison

 

If you like John Harrison’s trademark line and wash style then come and join him in a workshop. The day will include demos, exercises, outdoor sketching, ink drawing and the application of washes to create a loose, lively painting of iconic Yorkshire Dales featuers.

Reference material, exercise handouts and watercolour paper are provided but please bring your own packed lunch, paints, pencils, pens and sketchbook. Refreshments with home baking will be available during the day.

Broadrake is in a stunning location and there is no shortage of subject matter – dry stone walls, barns, limestone outcrops, viaduct, trees and fellside slopes. The venue is upstairs in a recently converted barn.

John is Yorkshire born and bred, proud of his home county which provides the inspiration for much of his work. He specialises in line and wash, a style which superbly captures the beauty and atmosphere of Yorkshire’s landscape, towns and villages.

A class working on willow curlew sculptures

Curlews

A very popular workshop for this iconic bird of the Yorkshire Dales, which breeds in the rough pasture around Broadrake. A framework is made for the body, and then random weaving is used, filling in the spaces with curves to outline the full body shape. The neck, head and beak positions can be adjusted to give each bird a unique pose. They look great staked into long meadow grasses but are equally at home inside on a small block.
