Gathering or Frame basket for flowers, hearts, fruit, bread, whatever you can think of!

Experience - Willow Weaving Course: Gathering or Frame Basket

A very traditional skill of framed basketry will be taught during this course. Each item made will have an individual style reflecting the personality of the weaver and the materials chosen in its construction. Using English willow, Rachel will teach in a stepwise manner ensuring success for all participants. All you need to remember to bring along is a sense of fun and a packed lunch.
