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.
