Check out the free videos on Brendan’s You Tube channel Big Green Art, to get a taste of what you might be able to weave.
(Video streaming is through Vimeo service) The Oval Shopper is for intermediate basket weavers. The video is an hour tutorial.
Brendan Farren of Big Green Weaving in Inishowen, Donegal explains, “Watch over my shoulder as I show you how to weave a base with 2 rods, called pairing, as well as reverse pairing, which allows you to control the flatness of the base.
I will also show you the crucial weaving techniques of 3-rod waling, French randing using 2 rods, and then a ‘Behind 1, 4-pair’ border to complete the top of the basket. Then to finish off, I will show you how to add a bow handle.
With these new weaving skills, you will be well equipped to weave any ‘stake & strand’ basket.
What you will need to make this basket:-
40 x 6′-7′ (1.8-2.1m) willow rods for base and uprights
40-50 x 4′-5′ (1.2-1.5m) willow rods for weaving”
