Breton Button Basket OR Simple Frame Basket *** This workshop is full. To join the wait list please contact our Course Co-ordinator ***

Saturday, 12 May 2018

Choose from one of two completely different baskets on this one day workshop with Richard & Suzanne Kerwood.

The Breton Button Basket is from the Vannes region of Brittany where it is known as the sklissen. Students will be shown how to make the small button which starts the basket then how to cut, slype and insert the ribs. You will also be shown pairing with multiple strands and finish with a simple trac border.

A selection of garland type hoops will be provided for the Simple Frame Basket workshop, and you will be shown how to make the hoops. Students will also be shown how to fit the rim ring, weaving from both ends, adding ribs and packing. You will also have the opportunity to make a set of rings for your next basket.

Both workshops are suitable for beginner and intermediate levels and all tools are provided.

Please download either of these documents for more information about the workshops: Word document or PDF document.
