In my new full-day workshop, you’ll learn to make an attractive and versatile ‘frame’ basket, using natural English willow. In this kind of basket, willow hoops and ribs form the basic structure. You’ll weave the basket using a mixture of willow, rush and other materials. Traditional frame baskets have been around for nearly a thousand years, and a type of ‘hen’ basket would once have been used by Scottish crofters to carry a broody chicken! This new class is ideally suitable for those who have a little bit of willow-weaving experience. All the tools and materials needed for the day are supplied.
Please note that places on all my workshops are limited to small groups so that everyone gets enough individual tuition and has plenty of space.
To reserve a place, please contact me via my website: www.christianegunzibasketry.com, via Instagram, or fill out the form below.
Payment by bank transfer is required one full month before the class, as the materials require advance preparation.
If the Covid restrictions change and I need to cancel a class, or if a venue has to close, I will reimburse you in full.
Summer and Autumn 2021 basketweaving workshops will be added soon!
