Beginners Basketry – Yin and Yang

This course has been designed to suit both absolute weaving beginners and improvers. A range of bases will be provided. Alternatively, attendees are welcome to bring their own.

What is a Yin Yang basket? In this instance, the term is used to describe the border which is stepped up the handle on each side of the basket, thereby creating a Yin Yang shape to the top.

The day will centre around creating this unique basket’s shape as well as learning the process of traditional round willow basketry.

I would just like to thank everyone for a very enjoyable day today and thank Sarah for her patience. Everyone on the course successfully completed their Yin Yang baskets.
