Class #55 – Really Random – 4 SPOTS LEFT

Using unpeeled willow, students will start this basket by weaving hoops which are attached together for the handle. “Stakes” will be inserted progressively, the literally random weave will allow students to discover how to develop and fill in spaces in the basket, as well as create shape. A fun basket to weave!
