Hazel Whisket by Clare Revera is a split hazel basket, traditionally made in all areas of Wales following the age old principle that humankind has made vessels from the materials found in the landscape around them.
This basket is a simple functional version and would have traditionally been used for foraging or any other storage or gathering purpose around the home and garden.

The hoop, ribs and weavers are all of hazel. The technique of raising and dressing hazel strips from one rod to create weavers is a skilful process, honed for many years. The hoop and ribs are made from the centre of the rod which remains after raising the weaving strips. The hazel rods need to be at least 5 years old and preferably slow grown on the North side of woodland or coppice.
