Bowls with Holes & Eyes!

A two-day course creating bowl shaped forms with holes or ‘eyes’. Perfect for those wanting to experiment and create more contemporary looking baskets. You will be using a hidden log section base- nice and strong, beautiful willows and learning how to create weaves which flow round apertures or over ‘eyes’. You will learn how to control rounded forms as you weave, how to produce chunky borders (with or without finger handles or driftwood/log handles) and all about a variety of willows and their uses. A stunning, unique basket to make and take home.

The perfect follow on from a basic course or from the Bonkers Basket course.
