Class #34 – Arrowhead

This basket inspiration came from another cotton cord basket I designed called Celebration. Instead of stacking the arrows we make them spiral. Students will start with a wood base with the spokes pre- glued prior to class. The design is quad twined with four colors of cotton cord and finished with a modified version of a match stick rim. The rim inspiration came from a basket I designed years ago. Students will have a choice of colors. Techniques include quad twining, completing a row and setting up for next, spiral and stack pattern, and shaping.
