Date:   Friday July 26, 2013

Time:   9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Cost:    Supply Fee is $8.

Instructor:  Crystal Kitchens.

Maximum number of students:  12.

Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up.

 

In this workshop, you’ll make a round basket.  You’ll learn how to handle basket reed, how to start a round basket, and how to shape a basket.  The finished baskets will be about 6 inches tall with a 5-inch diameter base.  You can use colored reed and beads to decorate your baskets.  No basket making experience is required.

If you’ve already woven a round basket, you’ll have the option of weaving a double wall basket or weaving a basket over a quart jar (bring your own jar).

If there is time, you can weave another basket, starting with a wooden base.  Basket making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel.  The instructor will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

Bring a sack lunch. Read more about Weave a Round Basket
