Fancy Bowl or Fruit Basket

April 22, 2019
Susan Matson by 6:30pm, Return by 9:30pm

(Registration closed; call the Council at 717-264-6883 to ask about the waiting list!)

This round reed basket has graceful lines, unique design elements, and is completely functional. Despite its impressive looks, everyone can successfully create this basket.  At 10”-12” in diameter x 5”-6” high, students will use basic round reed techniques with enough repetition to really work on weaving and shaping skills.  Uncommon design elements include creating the madeira-style openwork on the outside of the basket, and weaving a foot to give the basket additional stability (also facilitates airflow around fruit, if that is how you will use the basket).  Handle optional.  A smoked (brown) reed upgrade will give you a two-tone basket. Materials fee $22-$26 payable to instructor.

Observational Drawing
