Make a Traditional Waste Paper Basket

Sarah Gardner
£95

Learn how to create a traditional wastepaper basket by using different weaving techniques guided by the tutor.

This course is for students who have some experience with basketry or for people who are particularly practical.

Learn how to create a traditional wastepaper basket by using different weaving techniques guided by the tutor. You will use techniques such as pairing, wailing and French randing to make the base and sides. To finish your basket you will weave a track border. We will be using farmed buff willow from Somerset.

Room allocated on arrival

All basketry materials and tools will be provided. Please bring a notebook and pen.

Sarah trained as textile designer, this sparked her interest in constructed textiles and led to her practicing basketry for the past 7 Years. She is interested in growing and foraging natural materials for making but also has a make-do-and-mend approach and is always on the look-out for man-made materials that can be adapted or useful in basket-making. This requires a lot of testing to work out the qualities of the materials and their suitability for different weaving techniques. As an advocate for the crafts Sarah also helps run a small leather accessories company and teaches and practices basketry in Brighton.
