Oval Basket Workshop

In this two-day workshop for intermediate to advanced weavers, you will create a medium-size oval basket with or without a handle.

This workshop is for intermediate and advanced weavers. 

The more experienced weaver will have the choice to make a larger basket (at an additional cost paid on day of class) or to explore and/or practice more advanced techniques such as zig-zag French rand, fitching, Irish weave, English rand and slewing. 

A medium size oval basket with a bow handle is perfect for shopping or storage of smaller items or blankets in your home.

You will make an oval basket or traditional oval basket with an oval base, insert stakes and weave a base wale before pricking up the stakes. The side weave available can be French Rand (single, double), Zig-Zag, Irish weave,  English Rand, Fitching, Slewing, depending on your prior experience weaving with willow. Your level of prior experience will also dictate choices available for the border.
