Baskets

Post by DeMeer »

Hi,

Can anyone give me advice or any links on how to make a 13th century basket. I want to make some for my group and just need to know how to start.

Thanks

De Meer,

It might be worth trying to get hold of gerry Burrows. I know at TORM he was saying that he was stopping making baskets, but he might be willing to offer advice or lessons.

And he would more than likely be able to point you in the direction sources.
