Basketweaving: Closed-Bottom Coffee/Tea Basket
A next step in beginner-level workshops for students who already have completed Intro to Basketweaving, or have some basic basketweaving experience, and would like to continue to build their skills in classic flat-reed basketry. In this one-day workshop, we’ll be focusing on learning how to create a solid base in your square basket and how to create a zipper pattern using weaving techniques with a specially hand-dyed, natural tea-dyed reed. You will get to weave your very own 7-inch x 7-inch x 4-inch Zipper-Pattern Closed-Base Coffee/Tea Basket to take with you. Tool kits, spoke weights, and soak tubs will be available to use during class. You will need to bring your own blot cloth and clothes pins. Weaving materials can be purchased directly from the instructor for $8.
