Divided Magazine Basket - CANCELLED - WILL BE RESCHEDULED
As requested! This basket was one of the offerings at last spring’s Weekend Weave, and after seeing it made up, some of of the class decided that they would like to have one also…so here it is! The basket is made on a wooden base with an attached divider, and the weaving is accented with wide, flat braided seagrass. Measuring about 15”l x 12”w x 13”h, this sturdy basket uses basic weaving techniques. Because of the advance time needed to obtain the base/divider assembly, students need to register for this class by March 9 (the first day of the Charming class, above). Ball feet are optional. All skill levels welcome. Materials fee payable to instructor: basket-$82, ball feet-$8.
