In this course, you'll learn how to make a random weave basket with Julia Clarke, a sculptor specialising in natural materials including cane and willow.
Through easy-to-follow instructions, photographs and short videos, Julia takes you through creating a basket from cane and materials found in your own home.
You'll learn the 'three-way weave' technique and how to create a rice mould.
The baskets can be both functional and sculptural and can be made in a few hours.
Choose from the course on its own or buy the course with a kit of cane delivered to you to get started straight away.
The kit includes: 8 pieces of approx. 1.5 metre sections of 5mm glossy lapping cane - enough to make a small to medium sized basket following Julia's course.
You will also need: cling film, a plastic bag, sticky tape, masking tape, scissors, rice, pen, sponge.

Julia Clarke works with willow, both dried and living, with wire, steel, paper, and ceramic to create sculptures for indoor and outdoor spaces. Natural materials and environmental concerns are an important element of her work and the rhythm of weaving and using tactile materials are important to her process.
