Basket are both functional and aesthetic and is one of the oldest crafts. There are many different designs and styles which are adapted for specific uses. Baskets are skilfully woven often using natural materials grown or collected in the local landscape or supplied by specialist growers.
A properly made basket both traditional and contemporary will last many generations, provide unique style and great value for money. Your local basket maker can make a basket suited to you or will repair an old favourite.
Basket making is very fulfilling and enjoyable and it is well worth attending a training course to make your own, they also make great gifts.
