Workshop Info

Date: Thursday, October 17, 2024
Time:9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Category:Basket Weaving
Instructor:Wendy Jensen

Weave a useful over the shoulder or cross body carrying and foraging basket using rattan. This basket’s shape was designed to mimic the much larger Adirondack style packbaskets but in a smaller size with a single long leather strap to wear over the shoulder. This basket is a great exercise in shaping with lots of attention paid to our weaving tension. Students will start by learning to weave a filled base and then work to shape their basket to create the desired result. The basket will be finished with a long leather strap, rims and lashing. This basket is approximately 11” high at the back and about 6” across at the top. Some basket making experience is helpful.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED:  Beginner with some experience

PREREQUISITE:  Some basketmaking experience is helpful
