This exciting workshop incorporates the skill of basketmaking with the skill of the pastry chef.
You will make a beautiful willow Zarzo tray that you can use to present your hand finished Christmas Pastries.
The Zarzo tension tray was historically used for draining cheese, although in recent years it has been transformed by Ulla Misser into a crafted work of art. Gill Jones 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. The willow for this workshop is grown here on the farm.
Jan Williams will be taking the lead for the pastry making part of the workshop. Jan has many years experience of teaching young people to bake and she has also worked with willow.
