Oval Shopper with Peter Dibble
Thursday 14th and Friday 15th July
To attend this workshop you need to have made a few round baskets and have the physical strength and flexibility to weave an underfoot base. This base is made on the floor, under your feet, so we recommend you avoid a big breakfast!
Cost £180 materials included
This basket is made using a range of basketry techniques. You’ll learn how to make an underfoot oval base and how to use a variety of weaves such as wailing to set the shape, English randing to to create texture and packing to alter the height of the basket. The basket is finished off with a wrapped handle which is tied off with a herringbone detail. There will be plenty of colourful barked willow to use, so how your basket looks is in your hands.
