I think I have probably spent thousands of hours twining baskets! It’s my go-to basketry technique where ever I am – on the train, sitting quietly on my balcony or even in front of the TV. I just love it.
It’s a basketry technique that once you’ve learnt the fundamentals, you can unleash your creativity and apply it to so many materials and forms to create stunning baskets and sculptures. How exciting is that!
In this comprehensive video based course you can learn at your own pace, stop and start as many times as you want! As well as begin the course whenever you want. You have lifetime access.
By the end of this comprehensive course, not only will you have multiple gorgeous baskets, but you will be confident in this basketry technique.
You’ll learn the proper technique, how to start and do multiple finishes as well as the patterns including straight line, diagonal, checkerboard, chevron and three rod wale.
BONUS - I wanted to share one of my favourite things to do – weave onto driftwood – so I added that as a bonus at the end because I was too excited about this course not to!
