Weave a basket

Last year I taught a class on basket weaving to several members of the group. There are so many new members I thought I might offer it again some Thursday evening in Sept/ Oct. at the picnic area at Blue Jay Point. Bring a bagged supper and the class should take about 2 hours. All supplies are included in the 10.00 fee along with hand outs. This will be a small round reed basket but with the knowledge you will be able to apply the concept to any vine . While we are weaving I will also discuss how to process vines and touch on natural dyes.

    Terrific experience with a GREAT teacher! Thanks so much for offering this. It was well worth fighting the rush hour traffic for the opportunity to learn to weave.

    So sorry to have missed you guys. I left Durham at 4:30 just knowing I would be early. Ended up lost and gave up around 5:35:-) Aside from the road construction the drive was nice and I saw some beautiful sections of Raleigh. My dog was happy because I made it home in time to take him for a walk:-) Hope to see you next time.

    Hey Lea,
    Can you tell the name of the #2 & #4 materials we used amkin the baskets? I am so NEW at this & loved it!
    Thankx again for sharing your knowledge.

      Glad to share Will, enjoyed having you. I am not surprised you might want to do more. What we used was round reed. I buy mine from www.basketmaker.com. They seem to have the best materials next to Mother Nature. it comes in all sizes. the higher the number the bigger the reed.

    Fan-double-tastic! Very interesting education for understanding how simple it is to weave a basket. Guess I would have enjoyed being a basketweaver in another life!

    Looking forward to this class. Basket weaving has been on my bucket list for a long time!

    If anyone decides to attend last minute and you don't have a paypal shoot me an email. We still have some spots left!

    Just a reminder that you will probably need a towel and perhaps a chair for this meet up. Feel free to bring something along for your supper. The park closes at 8:00 so we can talk and weave at the same time. I am looking forward to meeting you all. Basketweaving was officially put on the " lost arts" list in NC so the more folks who can do it maybe we can pull it off the endangered list.

    Hi guys, we are using Paypal now to collect need funds for the workshop materials. The only way to set this up was to reset the workshop, which is why everyone was cancelled out. Please register if you are interested in attending. If you have a problem with using Paypal, please contact me.

    Blue Jay Point is really far for me. I'm sorry but I can't get there by then. Y'all have fun anyway.

    After Labor Day the park closes at 8:00 so I am starting this at 5:30... bring your self some dinner to munch on, a towel, an apron if you have one ... If work prohibits you from getting there until later come when you can and I will work with folks as they come in... The baskets will be about 4 inches round but will give you the concept...I am looking forward to meeting new folks!
