I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Learn how to weave an Irish Skib basket, traditionally used to drain and serve potatoes.


Often made using colourful bands of willow and a beautiful “portcullis” centre in the base. Master a variety of techniques including a two-rod pairing weave, adding side stakes, using a three-rod wale and completing the basket with an attractive border.

This flat, tray-like basket can also be used as a bread basket and is perfect for beginners and those wishing to extend their knowledge.

Different coloured willows will be available.
