What will your basket look like?

Experience - Willow Weaving Course: Small Round Basket

Once you have chosen the varieties of willow that will be used to make your individual basket, Rachel Evans, our tutor, will instruct the steps to be followed to ensure success in this project. Your major dilemma will be afterwards: these baskets can be put to many uses, so what will you do with yours?
