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.  On this two-day course students will use heavy home-grown rods to create a chunky and durable basket. We will start with a traditional underfoot base followed by a strong wale and randed sides. A nice simple border will be topped-off with either finger hole handles or, for those with more experience, cranked rope handles. There are only 3 students on this course so plenty of one to one tutor time.
