Class Description: You know you’ve always wanted to know how to weave a basket, so jump right in! Most other basket classes will require this basic class first. This basket features a wrapped wood handle, and the finished is approximately 6”W x 14”L x 5”D. You will be weaving in natural reed and one color of your choice. You will learn the seven basic skills needed for most basket designs: wrapping a wood handle, twinning the base for stability, “upsetting” the basket, weaving, attaching and lashing a rim.
