Online Cyntell Course via Zoom - 3 Taught Sessions, Instructions and 14" Cyntell Frame set
This is for 1-1 basketry tuition to learn the traditional Welsh Basket, the Cyntell. The price includes a 14" Cyntell Frame and Rib Set for you to use in Session 2 and 3. You will need thick willow for ribs and basketry willow for weaving to complete the course (I can provide this within the UK on request if necessary).
This Online Course of 3 zoom sessions includes full written instructions and forma templates. Each session will be recorded so that you have an individual instruction video to refer to in the future. Individual feedback will be given via Zoom and includes specific skills teaching following a structured programme and suggested homework. Email support is also offered between sessions.
Short Introductory Session (FREE) Material purchasing, selection and preparation
For Canada and USA Willow supplies contact the Branch Ranch. Please note there will be an additional shipping fee for the frame for international students and you will need to source willow for weaving.
