I am attending a beginner weekend basket making course in Furbo, Co.Galway with Ciaran Hogan, son of famous basket maker Joe Hogan. There are eight of us all from different parts of Ireland.
Furbo is located in Connemara, the seafood and scenic views are breathtaking. There are cows grazing in the small stone walled fields, that to the eye appear to drop off into the Atlantic Ocean. A beautiful part of the world!
Yesterday, Saturday we made a simple bread basket and started the base for a shopping basket. We are having great fun and learning traditional skills.
