Over the weekend you will learn to use willow to make a round basket. As you weave up this tall basket you will be able to try several different weaves creating patterns and texture.|
This is a great class for complete beginners and also for those who have done some basketmaking before and who really want to get to grips with basic basketry/willowweaving skills and also learn a few different side weaves. It is a great sample basket with different weaves that you can refer back to in the future.
Beginners will learn;-
Make a base, upsetting and weaving the sides of a basket, turning down the border.
Improvers will be able to refine the above skills as well as learn a different method of upsetting and learn new/different side weaves.
There will only be six people in this class so plenty of individual attention and advice on techniques
