Description

Weave a shopping basket in natural coloured willows. We will start by putting the base sticks together and weaving what basketmakers call the slath we will progress onto putting on the upsett. The bottom wale follows this and then the pattern followed by more waling, the border and the handle. A satisfying experience ending in a practical and useful basket you can use for anything...

All tools and materials are provided. Tea coffee and homemade cake but please bring a something for lunch.

I started wyldwoodwillow back in 2001 after weaving for a year or so... It helped me through a particularly difficult chapter in my life and I discovered that I had a burning desire to share the healing nature of weaving. I started teaching workshops fairly early on and weaving pretty much anything I could, currently I weave baskets, coffins, living willow,sculptures and create furniture and decorative fencing for the home and garden. My business is successful and I am a full time weaver.
