Easter Basket- Led by Karen Wychock
Easter will be just around the corner and what better way to prepare for the holiday than to weave your own Easter basket! Keep it for yourself or gift it to a child filled with chocolates and stuffed bunnies! You can learn to weave this beautiful 10” round basket just in time for Easter.
This basket does not require a mold. It will be woven using a preformed “D” handle. You will learn to twine the base, weave the sides, attach the rims and handles and then lash the basket. You will also learn to embellish the handle by wrapping it with dyed reed to create a pattern. A variety of dyed reed will be available to students for their basket. This basket can be woven as an Easter basket or not.
Suggested to wear an apron or bring a towel; work is done wet.
Materials fee: $40
