Breton Style Basket at Higher Barn

Breton Style Basket at Higher Barn


The course assumes the student is a beginner and starts with a Health and Safety briefing and an explanation of the tools and how to use them.

We will start with a pre-made base supplied to make a 14 rib basket, students are shown how to fit this to the jig.

Students are shown how to cut, slipe and insert the correct size and number of ribs for the basket they wish to make.

Weaving is started with simple pairing and indeed pairing is used throughout the basket building up to multiple strands in each of the two groups as the space between the ribs increases.

The basket is finished with a simple track border and twisted rush handles can be added if desired.

Also, a base can be made for the next basket.

The course is taught in an unheated barn so warm clothing is vital.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
