description

Learn the principles of making a round stake and strand basket, and experiment with making your creations under the guidance of tutor Anna Turnbull.

Anna is a basketmaker and willow sculptor. She is a member of the Basketmakers' Association, Scottish Basketmakers Circle, the Heritage Craft Association, and the Northumbria Basketry Group.

Anna grows a variety of willow species, each with different qualities. She weaves baskets using traditional basketry skills, adapting these techniques to more contemporary forms and sculptural pieces.

"It is a privilege to help others along their creative journey, sharing skills, overcoming challenges, and supporting them as they produce something of which they can be proud."

All rooms are en-suite with tea and coffee-making facilities, and many have lovely views over Flanders Moss Nature Reserve, towards Sterling. Your course includes full-board; our chefs freshly prepare all meals. Enjoy a glass of wine as you relax in the dining room, looking out over the views, and discussing the day's work. Bar facilities are available during dinner. Five-night courses include an optional visit to Loch Katrine (with a one-hour cruise) or the Scottish Wool Centre in Aberfoyle (transport provided)

Complimentary transfers from Sterling train station are available on arrival and departure (pick up from the station at 15.30, departs Gartmore house at 10.00).
