The True North Storage Basket is woven using traditional flat reed basketry techniques. It will be rimmed with long leaf pine needles and lashed with coordinating waxed linen. Berch bark curls are added as embellishments after the basket is complete. Choose from natural or several color dyed pine needles for the rim. Participants will learn how to lay out a base, then weave up the sides with emphasis on rounded shaping with a gentle flare. The pine needle rim and birch bark curls are a fun and unique nod to the Northwoods! This class is suitable for all weaving levels. Beginners welcome! Basket size is approximately 7″ x 7″ x 6″ high.
Adults and teens 16+. All materials supplied. Deadline for payment/registration: June 23.
