Weave a Round Basket @ Madison

Madison Public LibraryMeeting Room

Friday, February 24, 2017 - 9:00am

Join instructor, Crystal Kitchens, to learn to make a round basket. You'll learn how to handle basket reed, how to start a round basket, and how to shape a basket. The finished baskets will be about 6 inches tall with a 5-inch diameter base. You can use beads to decorate your baskets. No basket making experience is required.

For those who know how to make a basket, you have two options: weave a basket over a quart jar (use as a flower vase that will hold water) or weave a double-walled basket.

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 other tools and supplies you'll need to use during the workshop. Also, please bring a sack lunch.

There is an $8 supply fee due at the beginning of the workshop. Registration is required. To register, please call 256-461-0046 or e-mail Teresa at
