Make a Basket in a Day – 20th September
September 20, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm£75.00
Basket making is one of the oldest crafts, pre-dating pottery, with a rich worldwide history.
On today’s course you can choose to make either a frame basket, which is built on a hoop and ribs or a small round stake and strand basket, using buff, brown or white willow on both types. Either of these baskets can be made in one day by a beginner.
If you have made a basket before, you could try and add a handle, or make a slightly larger basket.
Techniques include slyping, tying the slath, pairing, three rod wale, randing, and a three rod border.
A work of art you’ll be proud of!
