Our full day round log basket course is £75 and include all materials, lunch and refreshments. You will come away with the knowledge of how to border a basket and something beautiful, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal to you.
This is a great introduction to English round work for those wishing to go bigger. Using an old recipe, you will start by learning how to tie an English base underfoot. We will be using five to seven-foot withies which require some strength and you will need to be able to at least crouch comfortably, but the basic basketry techniques will be the same as smaller round work just significantly beefed up.
When siding the basket, the weave you use will be up to you so there will be lots of opportunity to get creative under our tutors watchful eye. Handles can also be a challenge, but this course will allow you to put on as many functional or decorative handles as you wish, time permitting.
