Willow Gathering Baskets and Herbalism at Meadowsweet Organic Farm

July 26, 2018

At the weekend I travelled up to my homeland- Scotland- to collaborate with my inspirational friend Rosy. Rosy not only runs an organic farm (http://www.meadowsweet-organics.co.uk/)  with her husband, but is also a qualified herbalist.


On Saturday I taught students how to make simple willow gathering baskets, and on Sunday some of the participants took part in a seasonal herbalism workshop led by Rosy. 


We made were a simple version of a traditional frame basket. You can read about the history of these in Scotland on the wonderful woven communities blog:  http://wovencommunities.org/how-to-make/frame-basket/


Below are some pictures of Rosy's farm and the workshop:
