Round willow shopping baskets - 2 day course at Hilton Green Essington.

French randing basket


Have a go at making your own round shopping basket using traditional French Randing weave.

French Randing works multiple sticks at once, allowing you to build up the sides of your basket quicker and with less joins than other basketry weaves.
