Frame Baskets

Frame baskets are one of the earliest forms of basket shape, and the position of the curved ribs will dictate the overall depth of the basket, from almost flat, as a platter, to deeper, for a lovely fruit bowl, or gathering basket for the garden. The soaked and mellow willow will behave well as you guide it in and out of the framework, starting with decorative weaves to fasten in the main ribs.

You will gain an understanding of how the willow behaves as you weave the baskets and after the final trimming up you will have a useful basket you will be proud of to take home. There is nothing that looks so good as fresh bread or fruit on a shallow frame basket, logs or even a pair of cats in an English basket.

Phil’s gentle, relaxed teaching style will guide you through the various weaving patterns for the different parts of the basket and the frame, ribs, the body weaves and a handle for the Frame basket. Organic Willow provided.

Willow Plant Supports

This uses traditional basket weaves around the base of the support, to make it really strong with long base rods to insert the support securely into the ground. A different weave is used further up the support and at the end, a decorative top knot will tie in the top rods altogether. Very useful for your sweet peas or beans.

A class working on willow curlew sculptures

Curlews

A very popular workshop for this iconic bird of the Yorkshire Dales, which breeds in the rough pasture around Broadrake. A framework is made for the body, and then random weaving is used, filling in the spaces with curves to outline the full body shape. The neck, head and beak positions can be adjusted to give each bird a unique pose. They look great staked into long meadow grasses but are equally at home inside on a small block.

Willow Workshops – Make a willow Seed Pod @ Broadrake
Sep 15 @ 9:45 am – 4:30 pm

Willow Seed Pods

A variety of weaving styles and methods can be used to fill in the overall shape of a poppy seed head formed from curving willow rods attached tightly to the support stick and gathered together. The tepals can then be woven or left open – there are no rules and there is opportunity to explore different methods. Two or three pods can then be positioned together to add height and interest into the garden border, or smaller ones in a pot. It’s also possible to fill the pod with sheeps wool to provide nesting material for the birds in the spring.
