Pre-Requisite: Must have some prior weaving experience. Basket Weaving 101 or 102 count.
So you started in your basket weaving hobby, now let’s up the game!
This sturdy & functional Oval basket will serve you well for years. The solid bottom allows you to carry dishes and wow your friends, as we return to “normal” life. This beautiful basket is also useful for storage and enhancing the beauty of your home. They make great gifts as well!
Students will use flat reed to weave an oval basket over a solid pine base, focusing on keeping the oval shape. This basket is made using the same general construction as both the Bread Basket (Basket Weaving 101) and Market Basket (Basket Weaving 102), but due to its base and shape, it is not suitable for a first-time weaver. Those with prior weaving experience will learn to manage the shape of a larger basket and using a solid bottom to start, while refining their weaving skills. Students will be able to apply skills learned in this class to weave other baskets over grooved solid wood bases.
Materials to weave the basket will be provided but you must bring some tools with you to class. Be sure to download the supply list when you register.
