Willow Weaving

This week playtime down in the D & T department has been basket making- yep we’re ‘basket cases’

Theme tune……. Green Day’s ‘Basket case’ …… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoXl6ItEC5c

The raw materials- from Ed the DT teachers allotment










Ed showed how to cut 6 30cm twigs, then make splits in the middle of 3 of them. He also gave us some easy instructions, which I had no idea how to follow…..











The next stage was to thread 3 twigs through the splits in the other 3 twigs….

Then came the hard bit…. starting to weave two pieces around the central bit.

And slowly it grows..


This is as far as I got in about 40mins, will post more pics next time I work on it! Below is a pic of Nic weaving…. just like a real Forester!! Bx
