This light-weight oval basket uses the Irish “fishing creel” weave to create open, beautiful sides. 

willow creel weave basketDuring this two day workshop you will learn how to weave a Catalan base, set the stakes and begin the sides.  The sides will then be completed with the creel weave and you will also learn how to add shape to the top and weave the border.

Because there are more complex techniques involved than some other baskets, this creel weave basket workshop is more suitable if you have some experience of willow weaving (or attended any of our other willow workshops).

**This workshop does not include the straps.  You can source your own or purchase leather straps from the tutor on the day**

Take home your own unique and beautiful willow creel weave basket.

All tools and equipment will be provided.
