Tuesday, July 27 and Thursday, July 29, 11 am – 3 pm

Debbie Johnson

Learn how to weave a carry-all basket–a rectangular basket with two wooden swing handles–from start to finish! You might need a basket to carry gardening supplies to and from, or to carry any other endless array of objects. Perhaps you will attend a gathering of friends or family for a picnic – in person–so make yourself a special basket to celebrate the occasion and use it to carry that hotdish, or who knows what else! Your finished basket will measure about 10″ x 16″ and it will be woven about 5″ high. You will learn how to weave a solid base, plain weave sides, incorporate simple shaping techniques, and a set of wooden handles. Adding a rim that employs a technique used for finishing most baskets. Most students should complete their project by the end of class! Materials fee is $42, payable to the instructor at the time of class.
