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.
