Ash splint basketry

Mon 15 - Tue 16 Jul

£200.00

Steve Tomlin our Fan Bird and Spoon carving tutor will be sharing his expertise in Ash splint basketry.

This is a two day course and no experience is needed and if all goes well you’ll take home a fantastic fruit basket you’ve created.

During the course you’ll learn about pounding, grading and preparing splints learning the skills to weave while creating a practical and beautiful fruit basket.
An ash log is pounded to separate the individual growth ring layers which are then woven into lightweight, elegant and strong baskets.

This is a traditional American craft and Steve learned to make these baskets with April Stone-Dahl, a native maker from Wisconsin.

Steve Tomlin has been working professionally with green wood since 2003 and is an internationally respected craftsman with a huge breadth of knowledge and experience, both in making and teaching. He’s been teaching at Greenwood Days for many years and is a great tutor!
