Joe Hogan’s Basket Course – You have got to go!

Mel and I have just come back from the most fantastic trip to North West Ireland where we spent 4 days basketmaking with Joe Hogan in Loch na Fooey in Galway.  The location is unbelievably beautiful and the tuition superb.  We made a selection of baskets between us – traditional Skibs, a Kisheen, a celtic knot basket, a rectangular small log basket and a hedgerow birch bowl.  Joe not only skillfully teaches you anything you want to know, but also provides cosy accomodation, a delicious lunch and a visit to his willow bed (including cuttings).

It’s just got to be an annual trip!
