Willow Weaving – Small Irish Potato Scib

Summary information

On this one day course we will be making a small version of this Irish domestic potato serving basket (scib), with a portcullis centre.

You can choose from a variety of naturally coloured willow to make your own unique and beautiful basket.

You will be learning traditional ‘stake and strand’ basket making, using prepared basketry willow plus some grown at Denmark Farm Conservation Centre on the wetland system to add colour and texture.

The irish potato scib workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those who have previously done some willow basket weaving.

All tools and materials provided. If you have your own sharp secateurs and a knife, please bring them along. Please wear warm old clothing.
