Learn to Weave a Round Basket

Join us on June 22 as Crystal Kitchens teaches us how to weave a round basket! You’ll learn how to handle basket reed, how to start a round basket, and how to shape it.

The finished baskets will be about 6 inches tall with a 5-inch diameter base. You can use colored reed and beads to decorate your baskets. No experience is required.

If you’ve already woven a round basket, you’ll have the option of weaving a double wall basket or weaving a basket over a quart jar (bring your own jar).

If there is time, you can weave another basket, starting with a wooden base. 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.
