Using a fine gauge of round rattan reed, you will weave a small round basket (3” wide x 4” tall) with a woven lid to hold your tiny trinkets or jewelry. The basket is woven using the twinning technique with a rolled border for the lid, and the basket base has a radiating spoke with a three-rod wale accent.

Your instructor will provide the following materials:

  • round reed
  • wooden bead

Students are asked to bring:

  • Towel
  • sharp scissors
  • small bowl or dishpan for soaking reed
  • an awl and/or WeaveRite basket weaving tool
  • spray bottle
  • measuring tape 
  • As your class is scheduled over a lunch hour, we highly recommend you bring a lunch or click here to learn about local eating opportunities.

Skill Level 
It’s helpful if you’ve woven baskets before using round reed. Dexterity, repetitive motion, and patience are needed to weave this small basket.

Age Requirement
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend this class.
