Our full day beginners square with a plywood base course is £75 and include all materials, lunch and refreshments. You will come away with something beautiful, strong, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal to you.
This is a course designed for those who have never made a square basket before but have had some experience making other types of baskets.
Working from a plywood predrilled base, you will be shown how to make a simple square basket suitable for paperwork or storage. During the day you will learn various weaves and techniques including how to make square corners on your basket as well as your border. During the day you will be encouraged to make design decisions based on the basic recipe that will individualise your basket with choices of sidings and whether to add finger hole handles.
