The Tutor for this 3 day course is Owen Jones, the country’s leading expert in swill baskets, who will cover all aspects of making a traditional Lakeland Swill, including selecting, cleaving, boiling and riving coppiced oak trunks into thin splints.
Hazel rods are then dressed, steamed and bent into an oval rim or bool.
The oak splints are dressed and then you will weave your own swill.
Although an intensive course, it is suitable for beginners as well as those with some experience of green woodworking.
