Our new project focuses on basket making with two groups in East Dereham, Norfolk, UK. We are making zarzo baskets, decorative baskets from Cataluna in Spain. We are also making a connection with the nationally important basket collection at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse museum We will be visiting to see the collection with the groups at the end of the project.
Week one is about learning the weaving technique by making tension plates.
