This exciting workshop incorporates the skill of basketmaking with the skill of bread making. You will make a willow banneton that you will use to prove your bread dough. Bannetons are handy for keeping a shape when proving dough. Then, once your bread has been baked, you will be able to serve it on the willow tension tray/platter that you will also make. Gill will guide you through the basketmaking element of the day. She is an exceptional basketmaker with a talent for sharing her passion for this heritage craft. She uses willow because it is a strong, natural material that is sustainable and widely available. She also grows her own willow enabling her to work with many exciting colours of rod which makes her work visually exciting. Gill is a keen bread maker. Jan Williams will be taking the lead for the bread making part of the workshop. Jan has many years experience of teaching young people to bake and she has also worked with willow. This fun packed workshop will also make a wonderful gift experience if you are looking to buy a present for someone special.
