Willow basket weaving is one of the fastest growing crafts in the UK. It uses natural, sustainably grown materials and you'll learn to make beautiful objects that you can use everyday. Like with any craft, it can feel a bit daunting getting started. With this in mind we've decided to offer you a free video lesson from our Shopping Basket course and kit. Our kits are a great way of learning because you get lifetime access to one of our beautifully produced online courses, plus all the materials you need are sent straight to your door. This lesson is about 20 minutes long and you'll learn how to weave a round basket base, which is core skill for new basket makers. Click below to watch.
