Class #8 – Sculptural Melon

Students will pick out their handle from a group of curvy gathered wood pieces. Initial ribs will be set in place and ready for you to choose your beginning weavers. You will also learn how to size the secondary ribs, weave a stabilizer, fill in weaving with turnbacks and how to finish weavers when you reach the center of the basket. There will be many choices for handles!
