Gathering Basket


Summer has consisted of one technical difficulty after another but hopefully, touch wood I am back in the 21st century!  I made this gathering basket in July and had every intention of posting it over the summer months but just couldn’t!

It is simple to make and also to customize the size. The base was woven flat and then shaped to give a gentle curve. Holes were then drilled into the side stakes to allow a handle bow to be pushed through and then wrapped. The whole basket was made from buff willow.  Come and learn to make your own on Wednesday 14th October. See details on the courses page of this and others now listed.
