We are making baskets inside the ancient walls of All Saints church in Lydd
The sunshine was streaming through the stained glass windows and helping us to keep warm. We have set ourselves the task of learning how to make a basket base using brown willow.
We have cut the rods to approx 8 in diameter, we managed to tie in the slate ok but taking the willow around the structure proved more challenging and pairing the base sticks was definitely taking its toll so….
We all had a hot chocolate and continued
All the students have promised to complete the base and making sure there is a *crown* in other words a curve to the shape
We have the brilliant book by Mary Butcher to guide us through…..
Next week prickin up & upsetting
