Learn to make a wicker basket!

This kit teaches how to weave a wickerwork wall plaque in the style of the Hopi Indians of Third Mesa, Arizona.

Hopi weavers make and use this same style basket in weddings and ceremonies throughout the year. Many Hopi people believe that their ancestral spirit Spider Woman taught the people how to weave, and that she weaves the rain clouds that nourish the people's crops. Spider Woman is very important to both the Hopi and Navajo Indians of the Southwest.

Prepare to spend some time on this project. It could take more than 8 hours over several days.

The kit contains fiber rush, hemp twine, paper raffia, a tapestry needle and a 16- page full color instructional booklet.

You will need: scissors, pencil or pen, ruler, white or yellow glue, and patience (several weaving sessions are needed to weave the basket). Makes an attractive 8" plaque. Ages 12 and up, adult participation necessary for younger ages.

Made in USA by Lorna Pollock.
