Day One of Weaving new stock for the Cuckoo Fair, to be held at the Bell in Ticehurst on Sunday 15th May. Thought I’d start small with these two bread/fruit baskets to get my eye in again… having fun combining different willows (the red/black/yellow tones I’ve grown myself), and a plaited border for a change, in white willow.
Roll up! Roll up! Meet me and some other basketeers I know, selling our wares down market at Covent Garden. Tuesday 8th September – Sunday 20th September (shut Monday 14th). Prices from £5-£500, wide range of materials and styles, commissions taken.
Willow shopper or foraging vessel. Zig-zag weave and hedgerow hornbeam handle. Was fun to make. Next time will amend shape and proportions.
