Course fee: £95
This one day course is the perfect introduction to basketry, or development from a beginner’s course, and you will go home with a stunning basket made from beautiful willow and incorporating 3 rod wale and herringbone weave.
Working from a pre-drilled wooden bottom the difficult job of ‘upsetting’ (putting in the upright stakes evenly spaced) the basket is already done for you. You don’t see the base and those of you keen to develop your sills may wish to add a foot border later in the day. You will spend the day learning weaves and finish off with a chunky border. Handle holes or hazel handle may be attached if you wish.
Please note you need some level of manual dexterity in your fingers.
