Wonky Baskets

A challenging 2 days all about control and selection of the right type, length and thickness of willow. You will create a stunning a symmetrical basket starting with a Catalonian round base. Learn how to weave the base/stake up using this method, control shape (in a deliberate wonky way), weave and how to use lifts and packing to create flowing shapes.

A perfect course for those who can already control a conventional round basket, or for those who want to accentuate their wonky side!

Please note you should have already had a fair amount of basketry experience with round baskets and be familiar with 3 rod wales, French and English randing, basic rod bordering and use of basketry tools.
