Basket Making

This weekend we attended a basket making course run by basket maker Tom Brown at his workshop. In all there were seven of us ranging in age from the bright young ones to the golden oldies, it was so nice to do something creative with a great tutor and good like minded company.
Although we were all working with the same materials it is great to see how individual each basket turned out. It was a good weekend to be working indoors as it rained continuously and we would not have been able to do any work on the garden.
It was so nice to be able to chat and listen to people with their ideas and swapping gardening tips, and making contacts for cuttings of plants and willows. We will probably attend any further courses that Tom runs as we both had such a good time.

  1. So jealous! I´m really interested in basket weaving and making my own hurdles! Glad you had a good time.
