Debbie Johnson

Suitable for all basket makers, hand-construction artists, sculptors, weavers, including new-comers, there is no prior basket weaving experience required to join us for this introductory level class. You will get to create and take home your very own 8″ by 4″ basket that you can use for bread, fruit, various treasures, a gift basket (if you dare part with it!), or for any other function or non-function that suits you! A bonus kit to create a second basket will be included with materials provided by the material fee. Materials fee $15, payable to the instructor at class. **See supply list of items you need to bring with you to class**
