A Gathering, Shaker Basket Weaving

Instructor: Karen Wychock
Students will weave one or two gathering baskets in small, medium, or large depending on whether they sign up for the one-day or two day class. The body will be woven over a wood mold of reed with an oak handle. Lashing will be done with ash. There will be a variety of dyed reed to work with or students may decide to keep their basket natural in color. But first students will learn how to prepare the materials, lay out their base and then weave the sides of the basket. Rims and handles will then be attached as will oak runners using copper brads.
