Deadline for payment/registration: Sept. 25
Choose from two colorways at the time of registration:
Lose yourself in basketry for two full days and emerge with this beautiful medium sized bushel basket. Begin with a strong, filled base, alternating spokes of space dyed (variegated) and natural reed. Then, insert dyed reed overlays on the natural spokes for even more visual interest. Add sturdy leather handles before rimming. Lashed “skids” on the bottom lend more strength and stability to the base. Finally, continue the space dyed color palette with impressive (but easy) Cherokee wheels on the accent weavers.
Includes all materials, pattern and use of instructor’s tools. Long time basket weaver Dianne Mockler of Park Falls will guide you every step of the way, but students should have some prior basket weaving experience. This is not a class for beginners.
Size: Approximately 12 inches tall x 15 inches diameter, plus the height of the handles.
Long time basket weaver Dianne Mockler calls the Northwoods home and shares her love of basket weaving by teaching throughout the area. She especially enjoys working with beginners because they are amazed at what they can accomplish with just one class.
