Join us at Madison to learn how to make a round basket with Crystal Kitchens!  You’ll learn how to handle basket reed, and how to start and shape a round basket.  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).
