Beginner's Basket Weaving Workshop
Saturday, February 2, 2018
3:00 - 5:30 pm
Class fee: $49
Join us for a hands-on class to learn the basics of basket weaving! You’ll weave a flat reed basket, a timeless design, using simple tools and naturally grown materials that will be right at home with your most modern decor.
We’ll discuss a brief overview of basket making and various materials used… and then it’s time to get to weaving! By the end of class you’ll have completed a 6” accessories basket perfect for holding potted plants or as a catchall on the coffee table. Customize your basket with the shaping, colors, and patterns of your choosing and find relaxation through the guided step-by-step process. No basket weaving experience is necessary and all materials and equipment will be provided.
