My partner and I are basket makers and we live and work on our croft in Cleadale, on the north west side of the Island. We design and make bespoke traditional and contemporary baskets, including coffins. We weave our baskets using different varieties of coloured willow which are grown organically here on our croft. We sell , teach and demonstrate basketry in the UK as well as in Europe. Our web site is www.allaboutwillow.co.uk.
Taster courses for visitors staying on the Island. Run in our workshop on the croft. Every Wednesday and Thursday from April to September. 1pm to 4.30pm including tea and biscuits. An introduction into willow weaving making things such as table decorations, fish and willow platters. Cost £40 Please contact me to discuss what you would like to make by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm a 34 year old married female looking to write to a female from the Isle of Eigg.
I recently watched a programme about Eigg a while ago and found it fascinating. I
would love to learn more about the way of life on the Island and if I can make a
new friend into the bargain then that's great :D
