Class #5 – Its A Set Up

Students will start with a wood base with the spokes pre- glued prior to class. The design is woven with three colors of cotton cord and sueded leather accent between the different patterns. The inspiration for this basket was to teach students how the set up creates the different patterns. The rim is a regular reed rim with cotton cord filler and lasher. Students will have a choice of colors. Techniques include triple twining, completing a row and setting up for next, spiral and stack pattern, and shaping.
