This article is great, it tells you how and when to collect and prepare bramble stems for basket making. The bramble collecting season is about to begin so sharpen your secateurs and pocket knives! A lot of people recommend brambles for a beginner making wicker work because they are so flexible, they grow long usually with an even thickness too.

I came across this wonderful tutorial for weaving a basket made from brambles which are somewhat similar to willow. The tutorial is wonderful. It has many step by step photos that are easy to follow.

The basket is woven by Jon Bushcraft. The tutorial and his website are well worth a visit as he does amazing wood carving and crafts, and also builds canoes! Check this all out via the link below:
