workshop description:

A two-day class to give plenty of time to make a decent sized basket whether that be wastepaper basket, shopper, fruit bowl or small log basket. The choice is yours. We will be using the stake-and-strand method with circular English base. You will be able to choose a border style and add a handle if you wish. If you have particular ideas about what you want to make please contact Judith at least 2 weeks before the class to discuss.
