Ash splint basketry is traditionally carried out in the US and Steve learnt how to make these baskets with April Stone-Dahl, an Ojibwe craftswoman from Wisconsin. An ash log is pounded to separate the individual growth ring layers which are woven into lightweight, elegant and strong baskets. Steve will tell you about the pounding process and will show a short video but please note that this workshop uses splints already harvested by Steve; you are not expected to spend a lot of time with a log & mallet outside. You will learn how to grade and prepare the splints ready for weaving and the necessary skills to work with the ash splints to make a practical and beautiful table basket. Suitable for beginners.

The price includes all refreshments and lunch both days.

This was a new workshop in 2021 at Broadrake and with ash being a dominant species in the Yorkshire Dales it seems appropriate to run this heritage craft here.

Steve Tomlin is a regular tutor at Broadrake and has been here many times since he first taught us scything in 2013. Have a look at his website here – stevetomlincrafts.co.uk

Gathering / Hen Baskets

A very different shaped basket based on 4 hoops that meet to form the handle. Ribs are added which determine the final size and depth of the basket. These are a traditional, very old design, thought to be Celtic in origin. Suitable for both beginners and also those with previous experience of willow basketry. The challenge of this basket will be ensuring that the final shape is well balanced to ‘sit’ well and hopefully is symmetrical in most directions!

You may remember these from the ’50s; maybe your granny had one before the advent of the ‘plastic’ carrier bag. We had one kept in the pantry that was used to go ‘up town’ to the bakery!

Please find a link below to an article about the history of a ‘hen’ basket.

Material charge £35, to include 4 premade hoops, dried and ready for use. You will be shown how to make your own hoops in the workshop.

 

Tutor Anna Turnbull is a Fine Arts graduate of Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London. She now lives on her Northumberland smallholding and runs a number of courses from there as well appearing at local festivals, shows & exhibitions and demonstrating at Beamish Museum.
