We’ve had a lovely six courses teaching the Vale Adult Learners beginners basket making and they’ve made great progress along with some fantastic baskets.
The last course was in February and completed the two day round shopper course but there was also some time for finishing off the Gypsy baskets and in Nina’s case making a willow sculpture!
Everyone brought their half finished baskets back soaked and ready to go and before long were filling in the sides with a variety of weaving strokes. Nina managed to fit in a sculpture and a few others finished off their gypsy baskets while they were waiting for the stakes to be soaked enough for borders. Rather relieved to see the frogs hadn’t started spawning so we could use the local soaking tank.
