Hedgerow Frame Baskets – 2 Day Course

Make your own frame basket to take home using materials gathered on the beautiful Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve. Basket making is an ancient craft; on week one you will harvest the willow before learning how to create the framework of your basket using two hoops, binding them together using a God’s eye weave and adding in the ribs.
