Ash splint basketry is a new and exciting craft being introduced to the UK.
An ash log is pounded to separate the individual growth ring layers which are woven into lightweight, elegant and strong baskets.
Traditionally carried out in the US, Steve learned to make these baskets with April Stone-Dahl, an Ojibwe craftswoman from Wisconsin.
You will learn about pounding, grading and preparing splints and the skills to weave a practical and beautiful fruit basket.
