Here's a basket to take wherever you go and keep your drop spindle or small project with you. Students will learn how to weave a filled base as well as weave and shape the sides of a small traditional backpack style basket. The basket will be finished with a long leather handle, rims and lashing.

This workshop is held in a heated tent. Your hands will be in and out of water throughout the session.

Prerequisite: There will be a focus on shaping for this basket. Any previous basket experience will be helpful.
