How to do Things: Weave a Basket

Join us for this fun and creative craft class on August 9.

We'll each weave a basket on a 5” x 8” wooden base.  Baskets are pretty, and practical, any time of the year! In this class you’ll learn how to handle basket reed and how to shape a basket.   No basket making experience is required.

Basket making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel.  The instructor will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop. However, we ask that you please bring $5 to cover the cost of supplies.

This class will take place from 6:30- 8:30 pm on August 9, in the Main branch's second floor events room.

This class is limited to 18 particpants. Preregistration is required, using the form at http://hmcpl.org/events/2011-08/how-do-things-weave-basket.

This workshop is provided by the Huntsville Fiber Guild and the ongoing Basket Classes at the Huntsville-Madison County Senior Center.
