  • baskets again!

    Rubbish basket, made from rope, plastic strapping and driftwood, all found on the beach:



    Basket made to order for holding a flower arrangement to be raffled for the RNLI:



    Egg basket made from Shetland-grown willow (a first for me):

        Both really lovely. Did you have to reshape the driftwood at all or did you find it hollowed out? I bet it's very touchable

          I really like this sort of thing. Sort of retro in that I am old enough to remember all the women using woven baskest for thir shopping in the 50's and early 60's. These look like really good quality examples of the craft.

            They're all lovely, but I like the 3rd one best!

              Thank you for your comments. The driftwood is a flat piece and is as I found it - apart from the holes I drilled in it! I'm looking at it as a practice piece on how to use found rope and bases to make coiled baskets.

              I am delighted with the egg basket as it uses locally grown in Shetland willow - the other one has a mix of willow from Aberdeen and Somerset.

                Well done, they are really different and also well done for donating to such a worthy cause too! I hope they raise lots of money
