Popular Willow Weaving and Basketry tutor Phil Bradley is leading this 2 day workshop in the weaving skills necessary to make a traditional Frame Basket on the March course. You will be working with sustainable, organic willow that Phil grows near his home in in NW Cumbria. The Frame basket is one of the oldest forms of basket and you will find many uses for it around the home and garden.
Phil’s gentle, relaxed teaching style will guide you through the various weaving patterns for the different parts of the basket starting with the hooped frame, curved/split ribs, the starting weaves and the main body weaves. There maybe a handle too!
