basket weaving 101

June 9, 2012

on a beautiful, sunny day several of us gathered at the basket maker’s farm for a class

teacher grows her own willow, she had it all sorted and soaked

 we got to work in the garden, starting the bottom

most of us haven’t worked with willow before so there is some explaining to do

Arianne is making a bassinet, starting with a wooden base


she’s doing a beautiful job,  

it’s puppy’s first class, she’s just helping



yes, she’ll be finished in lots of time





meanwhile, back to the baskets

finish the bottom and start the turn

is it a hat Lauren?

everyone’s basket is different

what a wonderful day, thanks Johanne

    These are wonderful! The process has been so much on my mind these days so it’s a treat to see what other people are up to!
