This basket begins with your choice of a large, beautiful cherry or oak base. Woven completely in a natural reed, and finished with food safe oil, this basket features an eye catching twill design woven up the sides. Several varieties of handles will be available to choose from in class, including leather, wood or Shaker tape. Finished basket is 18” x 12” x 4” tall (excluding the height of the handles).

Instructor Bio: Dianne Mockler 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 late 19th 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.
Note: Only 10 students may enroll in this class. If you want a base that is “sold out”, please select the other base, register for the class and email us to let us know you’d rather have the other choice for the base.
