In this full-day class you’ll learn how to make a traditional round basket. You’ll weave the base, construct and build up the basket’s sides, then add a border, and a handle too if there’s time. We’ll cover several traditional weaves, including pairing, waling and randing, and you’ll learn about this lovely natural material and basket tools too. This class is suitable for keen beginners and those with a bit of experience of willow. Returning improvers can learn a new weave that they’ve not tried before. Brede Village Hall is light, airy and spacious, with plenty of room for safe social distancing. It is set in an easily accessible country village location, only a few miles from Great Dixter and Rye. All the tools and materials for the day are supplied.
