9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
In this class, students will make a useful and attractive tote basket. This is a great basket for holding your knitting, vegetables at the farmer’s market, your mail, or special rocks collected from the beach. This basket is a fun project suitable for beginner to advanced students.
Students will learn how to weave a checkerwork base with spokes that alternate in color. The sides are then constructed using natural and dyed weavers, and students will learn how to shape their basket.
Various sizes and colors of natural and dyed weavers will be available for students to create their individual project. Students will also have a choice of colors for the handle strap.
Materials: dyed and natural rattan, woven fabric strap
Tools for students to bring to class: your lunch, a bucket or dishpan, small towel, pencil, clip clothespins, an awl or knitting needle, scissors and/or diagonal cutting pliers.
