BA Spring School 2023: Large Scale Assymetric Baskets

By Sue Kirk
Harrogate Ladies' College, Clarence Drive, Harrogate, UK

These baskets are inspired by the work of Polish basketmaker, Stanislaw Dziubak, and have developed over time from experimenting with scale and colour.

Learn how to weave on a large scale with fine home-grown willows adding coloured rods to create a painterly finish. The finished pieces can measure roughly 50cm wide at the base x 55-60cm tall. Learn how to tie in a slath using scalloms, chase pairing, 4 rod pull down wale, 4 rod wale, double French rand or French slew , asymmetric border with 40-50 side stakes and a double or triple handle bow.

Suitability: Intermediate and advanced basketmakers (not suitable for beginners)
Cost of materials: £25 per basket
