ADKFS: Double-Bottomed Bushel Basket with Barbara Boughton
March 5 @ 9:00 am - March 6 @ 4:00 pm
2 days. 9am-4pm. Tuition $250. Member Tuition $200. Materials fee $35.
This is a great class for a first-time weaver, as well as for those who would like to learn some new weave patterns to create a unique piece. A variety of techniques will be discussed, including arrow weave and four-rod wale, as well as the use of color to create pattern. Students will begin by weaving a double-bottomed twined base. As they weave up the sides with the stop-start method, students may then choose to incorporate a variety of color and pattern which interests them. The basket is finished with a pair of leather handles made during class. With a double-bottomed base, this is a very sturdy and functional basket, as well as uniquely yours. Dimensions approx. 10″ diameter, 8″ high.
