Basket making

Post by PreppingPingu » Mon Nov 11, 2019 9:56 pm

Just did a very enjoyable Basket weaving day course using willow. It's shown me some basic skills, enough that I could go out and make a basket to use for foraging etc.

The end product:
The start: 2 basic hoops and a few ribs inserted into the first woven bits.
Apart from learning old skills, it gave me a huge sense of satisfaction.

Good job!

And now I've got something else to add to the 'Things to Do' list
