Crystal Kitchens will teach a weaving class at the Madison Public Library on Friday, February 22, from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. 

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 experience is required.

For those who know how to make a basket, you have two options:  weave a basket over a quart jar (use as a flower vase that will hold water) or weave a double-walled basket.

Basket making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel.  The leader will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

This class is open to ages 14+ and the supply fee is $10.  Please bring a sack lunch.  Space is limited so reserve your spot soon.

Questions?  Call Rachel at 256-461-0046 or email rhooper@hmcpl.org. Read more about Weave a Round Basket
