Weave a rope weave basket
I am Amanda Rayner, I set up my business Wyldwood Willow in 2000. I first started weaving when my friend Phil was emigrating to Oz and was offering several bundles of Willow and a quick afternoons lesson in how to make a basket. It all carried on from there and the rest as they say is history…
I now weave all sorts of things from baskets and coffins to decorative and living Willow fences, tunnels, arbours and domes. Sculpture and more recently furniture and light shades.
I teach at many venues including Humble by Nature and The Sustainability Centre and also share my skills at lots of festivals throughout the summer.
I realised pretty soon after starting that the sharing was where it was at, this is what really fills me up inside as a person and my drive to encourage more weaving has lead me to show in excess of 500 people each year how to weave something…
At Tiny Homes Holidays this spring we would again like to welcome Amanda of Wyldwood Willow to show us how to create our very own stunning rope weave baskets.
Over this two day course we hope to produce some stylish and colourful rope weave bowls and log baskets… size produced will depend on experience as this is a “next level” skill (keen beginners very welcome!)
With a delicious lunch to look forward to we will start the days with a coffee, woodburner crackling away and the studio well lit- the perfect backdrop for a couple of studious days weaving,
All tools and materials will be provided so nothing needs to be bought it is however not a hobby to be wearing your best clothes at so please dress comfortably in something you don’t mind getting dirty!
