Beaded Round Reed Basket
During this class, participants will learn the entire process of basketry from dyeing the reed to finishing the basket. Woven entirely in round reed, the basket is extremely strong and sturdy. The finished basket is approximately 10” wide, 8” across and 6-8” high.
Using samples as a guide, participants will design their own unique basket. The baskets are woven with a solid, round reed bottom using a combination of twining and three-rod wale. The sides of the basket are woven primarily using three-rod wale in 3 contrasting colors. Wooden beads, dyed or natural, can be inserted to serve as handles or as a decorative feature around the basket.
