What We Do

21 January 2017 - Boat shaped baskets

We had a large attendance for this workshop. Sally and Norma brought along examples of boat-shaped baskets.  There was plenty of colourful willow, dogwood, cane, sea grass, jute & raffia. Sally demonstrated the start by using cardboard pierced with holes to position the stakes into a boat shape.  After weaving the central section, she showed how to join the ends of the stakes using various binding techniques.  With the aid of handouts members constructed & completed a successful piece.
