Weave your own unique Williamsburg basket with colorful accents or in natural colors. Based on the traditional colonial design, this sturdy basket was often used for gathering vegetables, flowers, and eggs. The basket includes a sturdy square base with a wide, curved handle that is comfortable to carry on the forearm. The finished basket measures 7 inches by 7 inches square at the base with a 12-inch diameter top opening. (7 inches from base to top of weaving and 12 inches tall with handle.)
There will be a 1- hour lunch break. Bring a sack lunch or explore local dining options.
All materials are included in the Materials Kit Fee of $50 PAYABLE TO THE INSTRUCTOR at the time of the workshop. *Payment by cash or check is required for materials fees.
