Another fab day at the Butterfly arts and crafts studio. These lovely ladies worked very hard making willow and rush frame baskets. Well done everyone, the results speak for themselves.
We used seagrass cordage to join two willow hoops together with a gods eye before weaving with rush and willow to complete the basket. Everyone made their basket their own with a slightly different shape and combinations of materials. We experimented with plaiting rush and making cordage to incorporate into the baskets.
Thank you as well to the owners, Brian and Julie. They are absolutely lovely and work very hard to make the day a success. The studio is a great space to work in and the food served at morning and afternoon tea and lunch is delicious. No need to eat tomorrow! X
