Spent yesterday basket weaving at The Farm Shop, Tinahely. Had an interesting time learning some basic traditional Irish weaving techniques from a great teacher and, at the end of a long day’s work, all nine of us went home with completed baskets! The Farm Shop is a lovely venue, there was a slap-up lunch included, and two friendly pigs kept us company in the barn as we wove.
My basket is strong, if a wee bit bockety! Will definitely try it again. Here are some pics of the basket in progress:
