Basketry I - Alma Lambert
Baskets made this session will be a cathead basket, a casserole basket, a teacup basket and a napkin basket. The cathead basket starts out with a square base and ends up round at the top. Turned upside down, it resembles the head of a cat. It is a purely decorative basket. The hearth basket holds pine cones, kindling, yarn or magazines. The teacup basket is for tea bag storage and is a giant teacup. The napkin basket is decorated in overlays and will be made last so you can incorporate new techniques learned during the week. Shaping, twining and other techniques tips and tricks will be taught. All tools will be furnished. Lab fee covers all materials needed for the class and a twenty-page booklet of weaving techniques.
