What will your basket look like?

Experience - Willow Weaving Course: Troll Basket

Make a basket with a difference. Based on a polish design, there is no difficult border to finish at the end, ideal as a beginners basket. You will make a round base, stake it up and weave up the sides, creating a stepped pattern as you go. Finish it off with a lovely curved, natural handle.
