This structure is based on a salmon trap design and will look gorgeous as a plant support for climbing flowers or on the vegetable plot. You will work under the expert tuition of Dominic Parrette, Dominic is a Sussex based basketmaker, willow grower and teacher specialising in traditional frame baskets, organically woven willow forms and beautiful strong plant supports.
