Woven from English willow, this neat little basket is ideal for picking nuts and berries, or collecting eggs. Beginning with two hoops, your basket will gradually take shape as you add a decorative willow tie, ribs and then weaving. You’ll learn how to split willow, to shape the ribs, simple weaving techniques, and lots of other skills in selecting materials, finishing and trimming your work.
This project is ideal for beginners, with all stages clearly demonstrated and plenty of individual help. Please be aware that willow weaving is moderately hard work and requires a firm grip. All the materials you need are provided, attendees are just asked to bring secateurs.
