Square log basket- 2 day course
On this course you will make a strong and beautiful log basket with square base, waled and randed sides of spiraling natural colour and robust rod border. The handles can either be of roped willow or incorporated in the sides as finger holes. For this course it would be good to have some previous experience of basketry or be of a practically creative disposition. We will be working with slightly bigger willow, so strong hands are useful! Taught by Jane Welsh.

I have been basket making for 21 years and have been working professionally and running courses for the last 13 years. I feel ardently about protecting the knowledge of our traditional rural crafts that are so much a part of our heritage. My background is in arts and crafts. Having studied art, design and furniture making, worked in traditional timber framing and dabbled in stone masonry and stained glass, I then became hooked on basket making.
