  • baskets anyone?

    Does anyone else make baskets? I've done 2 weekend courses - one on willow and one on recycled materials. Photos of some of the recycled ones are in the recycled forum, this is my latest willow one, an egg basket made to order. The base is 5" high - any idea what to charge for it?

    Is there no end to your talent? I wouldn't know where to start on pricing, sorry.

      Don't know about talent - but I do love to dabble, must have a low boredom threshold!

            Sorry, don't know about pricing but your basket is beautiful . I remember doing basket weaving in junior school about 25 years ago... oh no is it really that long ago! I loved it at the time and it would be great to have another go, but I've never heard of any courses locally.... Well done, I look forrward to seeing more of your work.

              I did a course on basket making and resulted in this



              I made a thread about it here -

              I loved it but havnt really done much about making any baskets at home. The willow is so expensive.

                I have similar photos of my course. You used a different weave to me but I made a French cheese basket and a shopping basket on the course.
