English Round Baskets – the traditional round, log basket shape
Tutor Phil Bradley lives in NW Cumbria where he grows his own sustainable willow for basketry, garden items as well as bird & animal sculptures, all popular workshop topics. He has created some amazing structures and sculptures at RHS Harlow Carr and also takes commissions. www.philbradley.net
Phil will guide the group through all the processes to make sure that everyone masters the traditional basketry weaves
You will be taught the specific weave for the base and how to insert the uprights for the sides. Phil teaches two different weaves for the side of the basket. The more tricky rim is the last part of the basket but Phil will guide you all step by step – you will be immensely satisfied when the last piece of willow is put into place!
This is a 2-day workshop and you will take home a lovely large round basket.
The organic willow is included in the price, along with all refreshments, lunches and home baking.
