English Round Baskets
The traditional round, log basket shape.
You will be taught the specific weave for the base and how to insert the uprights for the sides. Phil teaches two different weaves for the side of the basket. The more tricky rim is the last part of the basket but Phil will guide you all step by step – you will be immensely satisfied when the last piece of willow is put into place.
Phil’s gentle, relaxed teaching style will guide you through the various processed involved to create an attracite and useful basket.
Phil lives in NW Cumbria where he grows his own sustainable willow for basket-making, garden structures and also bird sculptures, all popular workshop topics. The organic willow is included in the price and all the tools required will be provided.
