Did you bake bread during your time spent at home in 2020? Now, looking for a satisfying way to serve up all that goodness? Learn traditional basket weaving techniques with this bread basket with a twist! Create a diagonally filled base, weave up the sides, add handles, rim and lash. Choose from two different arrow designs and many color combinations. Includes all materials, pattern, and use of instructor’s tools. New to basketry? You’ll get expert guidance every step of the way.
Basket Size: Approximately 11 inches long x 7 inches wide x 4 inches tall plus height of the optional Shaker tape handles.
Arrive early at 9:30 a.m. to limber up your fingers and arms with ACE Certified Personal Trainer Erin Luoto from Luoto’s Fitness Center. She will assist in gentle forearm, wrist, and neck stretches to maintain flexibility and help relieve muscular tension.
Instructor Bio: Dianne is a basket weaver and fiber artist who began weaving in 1996 and soon after shared her enthusiasm for the craft by teaching others to weave. She enjoys working with a variety of materials, and is especially interested in weaving baskets with a Northwoods theme, or natural materials such as birch bark, willow, pine needles and antlers. Her great great grandfather owned a knitting mill in Milwaukee in the late19th century; she believes she is honoring her heritage by incorporating wool and other fibers into baskets, as well as using wet felting and needle felting techniques to create basket embellishments.
Student Suggestions: Wear clothes that can get a bit wet. Bring a bag lunch and an old towel
