Class #29 – Hazelnut
The hazelnut basket is made with fine peeled willow and is made over a wooden mold. The basket has a small round base (provided). Students continue with the weaving of a foot wale and then staking up. Sets of French randing include middle and top waling, followed by a rod border. A tall wrapped handle completes the basket. There is a ring of white willow in the middle waling. A most attractive basket!
