Bonkers Baskets

Play with types/colour of willow, different weaves and combinations of the two along with several bordering options to extend your knowledge and create a one-off round basket using a hidden wooden base, which may or may not have a hazel or driftwood handle.

Through the day you will change weaves, willows and placement of rods to create and unusual and unique basket. Weaves will include 3 and 4 rod wales, French randing, zig zag weave, rope weave and variations on all of those with multiple rods/different colours.

The perfect development from basic basketry or the perfect starting point for those new to the craft.
