Frame Basket - a one day course
Basket making is one of the oldest of all crafts. It pre-dates pottery and cloth weaving, and led to the invention of both. Each student will craft his or her own frame basket. All materials and tools are provided.
This style of basket uses the oldest of techniques, and is a very achievable basket, even with no previous experience necessary.
This type of basket also lends itself well to the use of wild / garden / hedgerow materials.
Join us in a woodland shelter, sit by a wood stove and weave your basket.
Please let us know if you have any specific requirements or needs
