Over the weekend you will learn to make a strong oval shopping basket using traditional English weaving techniques. Ideal for taking round the supermarket and much better than a plastic bag to carry your shopping home in. It doesn't topple over in your car on the way home either.|
This class is for people who already have experience of working with willow. You will learn how to make an oval base, with the option of learning how to make it underfoot. You will also learn techniques to upset the sides of an oval basket and turn down a border suitable for the basket. A strong wrapped handle will be added.
There will be a maximum of five people in this class at my studio so you will be able to get the attention needed to hone your skills. There will also be an opportunity to learn about and see first hand how willow is soaked and prepared.
Tea and coffee and biscuits/snacks are provided. There is a local pub where you could buy lunch or else you are welcome to bring your own to eat in the workshop or outside.
All materials are included in the price and all tools needed are provided.
