     June 7, 2023

Brunch, lunch, breakfast, tea, here is a basket for me!

Pile in your scones or muffins into this pastry-friendly basket! This is simple under-over weaving and is a great first-time project, as well as a fun basket for those who have some experience under their belts.

The final product will have dimensions of approximately 10” x 5” x 4.5.” Students will have a choice of adding a ceramic button, weaving colored stripes or chain effects, and the option of seagrass handles at the short ends.

Tools and supplies provided, but please feel free to bring your own basketmaking tools if you have them.
