One big flower or many more smaller flowers?
It’s ups to you! (The making of the flower centre is a good introduction to basket making)
In this course you will learn to create the central structure for the base and use several weave styles to work up the basket including a pairing weave, an English rand and a wale, before learning to close the basket with a border.
