THE CYNTELL
A two day course taught together with Les Llewelyn. The Cyntell is a basket which can be made by complete beginners, however, if you are an improving basketmaker there are a wealth of skills to learn during the making of this basket including the basic principles of frame basket making such as making the frame and weaving across the basket, splitting and shaving willow to form ribs. These skills have been handed down through generations and weaving this basket provides a strong connection to our Welsh agricultural and basketmaking heritage.
