Classes, Courses & Workshops
Weave an Irish Skib with West Wales Willows
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.
