Basketmakers at Rye Harbour


The recently refurbished Rye Harbour Village Hall with its new sanded floor was host again to basket weavers, travelling from Bristol and Canterbury as well as Rye to attend a two day course on Saturday and Sunday November 25 and 26. By the end they had made a willow handbag, and several other items under the instruction of Julie Gurr who was running the event.

Julie will be running new classes in January and February – a one day basketmaking class on February 20 is a great chance to have a go if you haven’t tried it before, and a weekend class on February 17-18, making baskets using willow and other materials from the woods (suitable for beginners or those with experience) .
