Huntingdon Blind School Buff Laundry Basket with Sue KirkBy Sue Kirk
Advanced and intermediate students only. Please note: the underfoot base in this workshop requires students to work stood up in a ‘touch your toes’ position and then a kneeling position for some time. Please also note that the heavy rods used in these baskets make the courses unsuitable for those with weaker hands.
This beautiful basket makes hanging out the washing pure joy! This pattern was copied from a basket we repaired for a friend in the village. We loved the design so much that we make a standard washing basket this way now. Learn how to weave an underfoot base with large 7′ buff rods, apply a neat slew, (with ends on the outside to avoid snagging), weave a wide border and add cranked willow rope handles. There are just 3 people on this workshop, so plenty of one to one tutor time.
Cost £200 per person, includes materials, bring your own lunch.
