Weave a Melon/Egg Basket

Signups closed for this Event

Learn to weave a Melon/Egg Basket at the Madison Public Library on Friday, April 26, from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.  During the class you will learn how to handle reed, make a God's eye, shape a ribbed basket, and make an 8-inch basket.  Both dyed reed and seagrass will be available for decorating your basket.

If you've already made a melon basket, you can learn how to add shaping to make a "fanny" basket.

No basket-making experience is required.  Basket-making is wet work, so wear old clothes and bring a towel.  The teacher will bring all of the tools and supplies you'll need to use during the workshop.

The supply fee is $14 and the class is open to ages 14+.  Reservations are required.  Please bring a sack lunch.
