Berry Basket one day willow weaving

Sat 10 Aug


On this one day course Rachel Evans will guide you through the process of making a small berry basket with a plain pegged handle, suitable for gathering lightweight berries such as blackberries and raspberries or eggs /pegs.

You will learn how to make a round base, choose stakes and stake up, then learn a weave called waling to make the main body of the basket. You will use a simple trac border at the top to hold it all together and then add a handle and peg the handle to keep it secure.

You will be using home-grown, colourful willows from Rachel’s own willow bed and some Somerset willow.
