Improver’s Basket Making workshop

Improver's Basket Making workshop

Make a medium sized basket in one day using willow grown at Denmark Farm.  

basket makingIf you only have a little prior basket making experience then you could make, for example, a large fruit bowl, or a waste-paper basket.  If you have made a few baskets already then you could make something a little bigger and/or with handles, such as a small log basket (or kindling basket), or a round shopping basket.  If you are moderately experienced in round work then this could be a good opportunity to try out some oval work such as an oval shopping basket.  The more prior experience you have the more adventurous you can be.
