I can show you the foraging basket I made, now that I finally managed to get it out to Kim from Oakmoon who ordered it!
It's a stout basket, with a thick handle. It's tough and should last for decades! That's one of the things I love about basketry and weaving in general. The strength created by weaving is mind boggling and very beautiful. When we were on the ferry coming back from the Scilly Isles last year I was mesmerised by the rope that they used to tie the ferry to the land to stop it floating away. As thick as my thigh and made by twisting and weaving grasses or whatnot.
Anyway, I've got willow soaking in preparation for my next few orders. These next orders are really going to challenge me. So I need to order some more bolts to get the practice in!
