This handsome basket is a lesson in twill weaving (over two patterns). Perfect for holding a large knitting project or magazines, this footed basket is woven of reed with bushel-basket type handles. Historically this basket was used for drying fleece, though it would have been woven in a plain weave to allow air to circulate through the wool. The finished size is approximately 11” x 11” x 12” without the feet and handles. For this class we will be using purchased handles and feet.
Fee = $130 + $45 for materials.
