Irish Weave Basket

This one day course is aimed at those with basketry experience and ideally a good working knowledge of round basketry to include, in particular, whaling and French randing. We will be focusing entirely on the Irish weave so you will be working from a pre-prepared base (which you can bring or we will supply) or a bordering board. The day will be spent mastering this weave which takes a few attempts to begin to get the pattern even and to acquire the rhythm, You will go home with a sound knowledge of how the weave works, comprehensive notes/photographs and either a number of samples or a small basket which may need to be bordered at home dependent upon time.

Skill Level : Intermediate
