Celtic Frame Baskets

IMG_0657

 

I just had the BEST time teaching four fab women the fundamentals of weaving Celtic Frame Baskets in willow. Their committment to the course and the job in hand was remarkable and we had some great baskets made. the course was over three Sunday mornings and I think we were right to pace ourselves. Participants learned how to cleave willow to make a God’s Eye, how to make hoops and ribs for the basket frame and finally how to weave. They all left with an almost – so close -it-was-painful completed basket and a big handful of willow with which to complete it.

Here they all are looking quietly pleased with themselves – and so they should.
