After we had made the tray it was time to start on the basket proper
We were shown the basics of the base then tried one for ourselves
After the bases were complete we had to decide on the particular pattern of weave we wanted to use and most of us went for a French rand with a 3 rod wale thrown in for good measure
Getting ready to start the weave
You can easily see the difference between the 2 types of weave in this picture as the basket begins to take shape
Basic basket completed, I just hope I remember how to do it again in the future!!
We also decided to put on a couple of different types of handles
