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.
