Waste Paper Baskets
Traditional Fitched waste paper basket, 1 day.
This course is designed for people who already have a rudimentary grasp of round basketry as an ability to weave a successful base and basic knowledge of weaves is desirable, however, beginners with a little experience are welcome as I will always have a supply of bases that can be used if necessary and I am happy to simplify the design to suit your abilities.
During the Day you will be shown how to make a round base and then sort and prepare all the willow you will need to make your waste paper basket. Following a very traditional recipe the course will take you through each element of the construction right up to the fitched top and plaited border. You will be able to take home not only a wonderful basket but the recipe so that you can make more for family and friends.
