I could weave these baskes over a mould. Many makers do and it would probably be quicker, certainly easier and they'd come out a lot more uniformly. But then, aren't slowing down, mastering skills and uniqueness precisely why we love handmade?  #ashsplintbaskets #handmadelife #slowliving #manifesto #uniquegifts #weareallunique
Makes me quiver! This was fun to create. I guess i can give osage his back. Amazing what you learn and relearn when revisiting skills once practiced. Thank God for social media and leaving it as a source of entertainment and keeping up with the Jones's... #blackashbaskets #blackash #ashsplintbaskets #bowandarrow #traditionalbowhunting #bushcraft #rewild #primitivebowhunting #primitiveskills #handmade #stonepoint #flintknapping #hunting #bowhunting #ancestralknowledge
Ash splint wall basket 7" high to rim. Made from pounded ash harvested in Cumbria. I'm really pleased how this has turned out with sweet curves and a proud belly.  Sold.  #ashsplintbaskets #basketry #homedesign #shakerdesign #naturalmaterials #organicstyle
Ash hanging loop steam bent and notched into the ash splint basket rim ready for lashing. I love the small details of these baskets; pinning the hoop into the weave, scarfing the rim, hollowing the back so it sits nicely against a wall.  #ashsplintbaskets #baskets #basketry #fraxinusexcelsior #smalldetails #naturalhome #organicliving

A wonderful weekend of basket making. To make the material first we must pound the ash logs. With @stevetomlincrafts @siwbox @william_st_clair

Carrying on my ash splint basket learning, i have made a little backpack for my 3 year old nephew. I don't have the skills, tools or materials to do the normal leatherwork so I am using some inkel loom bands to give it a soft, rustic feel. #ashsplintbaskets #prototype #miniversion #foragingbasket #inkel #inkelloom #madeforfamily #craft #greenwoodworking

Ash splints freshly pounded from english ash. Most of this will be used for some workshops I'm teching this year in the UK, passing on what I've lerned and encouraging others to explore this fantastic material.
My first split ash basket courtesy of a great weekend course at #cherrywoodproject in the beautiful cotswolds. Many thanks to #stevetomlincraft for the instagram inspiration back in December as I had never heard of the craft before seeing his beautiful packs. Also thanks to #anotherdetour for giving the process a human story which really inspired me to approach the course with more of a mindful attitude #ashsplintbaskets #craft #useful #slowliving #handmade #worthwhile #greenwoodworking
Weave, dry, pack down. Weave, dry, pack down. It adds time to the process and can break the work flow but it's important to keep the weave tight as the splints dry and shrink. This is the gap in my pack basket this morning. Neglect to pack down and you end up with a saggy basket and that's never a good look.
Weaving the ash splint pack basket continues. Over one, under one it couldn't be simpler so all the focus is on handling the splints and adjusting the tension in the weave to form the shape.
