Unique opportunity to learn the ancient art of swill basket making with the UK's leading Swill craftsman.
Working in a relaxed atmosphere with other like-minded people, you will enjoy the satisfaction of coming away with a completed swill of your own making patiently guided by Owen Jones MBE who virtually single-handed saved the craft of 'swilling'.
Run over three days during which time all aspects of swill making will be covered.
Starting with oak and hazel in the round, cleaving, boiling and riving the oak; dressing and steam-bending the hazel rim or bool; and finally everyone will weave and complete their own swill to take home.
So if you feel like doing something totally different come on the only course Owen will be teaching in the north-east during 2016.
