Class #23 – Melon-Colly Baby

Woven on 7” hoops, this small basic melon basket is just right for the first-time, struggling or lover of rib baskets. Students will start with an attractive handle wrap; complete a two-toned natural/color God’s eye; learn to prepare ribs to frame/shape their baskets, then finish weaving with reed and seagrass. Color choices at class time.
