*SIX PLACES REMAINING*
With Hilary Burns – website
Make a texturally pleasing, tall sided, oval basket with a sturdy central handle. This basket would be suitable for holding produce when shopping at the local market or for carrying a packed picnic and bottle of wine. You will use willow that Hilary harvests from her collection, as well as willow from the Somerset Levels, to weave this lovely basket. The inclusion of ‘rib randing’ as a weave on the sides creates a thicker decorative band that spirals up the sides. This course is suitable for students who have already made round baskets. Oval techniques are a step up and involve working with chasing sets of weavers. If you already have some basket making experience and want to move on in your learning, this course will help you develop your repertoire.
