Basketry using round reed, aka wicker. This type of weaving is lighter and airier and lends itself to creativity. This new class will be for beginners and those who have some experience in basket making. Everyone will make the same two items to begin with. These items will teach the fundamentals. Then a number of patterns will be offered to choose from. Each student will work at their own pace. The goal is to have fun, relax, learn a new skill and let your creativity flow.
You will need to bring a pail, yard stick, pencil, heavy duty scissors, an awl (ice pick, or small gauge knitting needle), and needle nose pliers. Studio
