Class #38PM – Sciathog

This classic Irish potato straining frame basket starts with a prepared and dried hoop. Students will place the first set of ribs using God’s Eye weaving. Randing weave continues from each side as the other sets of ribs are progressively inserted. A range of naturally processed and colored willows allow students to experiment with design variations.
