Ancient Craft: Frame Baskets

Ancient methods of making baskets involve making a hoop and ribs from stout twigs and weaving them to form a shell or shield-shaped basket. On this workshop you will work with beautiful willows and locally harvested twigs to make a solid and useful traditional basket, under the guidance of Maggie Cooper, a Yeoman member of the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers. Suitable for beginners.

Suitable for ages 16+
