I’m calling this one ‘the little Red Riding Hood’. I think she would have liked this basket. Plenty of room for treats for grandma.

My youngest son’s glow in the dark lamp shade broke. Instead of throwing it away. I cut it into strips and made a bias plaited basket for him. So good to repurpose items, to take them on one more step. 😊
Last Friday I spent time with lovely Jane looking at one technique for creating a square base.
This involves including sides stakes whilst weaving the base. It speeds things up considerably when it comes to weaving the sides. You have to insert stakes at either end of course but then you are good to get going.
Everything else about the process is then the same.
Saturday found me back at Star Wing brewery. Another lovely group of enthusiastic first time weavers. It was rather chilly but fortunately weaving is warm work. Everyone did a great job with their plant supports and hanging baskets. 😊
Couldn’t have hoped for a better first lesson back @star_wing_brewery Beautiful weather and lovely people. Thanks guys for making it such an enjoyable day. 😊 @karen_lawrence_basketry #willow #willowlesson #willowplantsupport #willowhangingbasket #learnsomethingnew #funwithfriends #funinthesun #weavingwillow #willowweaving #willowweavinginsuffolk
