Join us at the Gallery on the Square in Franklin, Kentucky for a fun day of weaving.  In this easy-to-make-basket workshop, students will learn techniques for shaping their basket and creating perfect rims.  You’ll enjoy the process of making this generously-sized basket using natural reed, dyed reed, and paper splint; the set of leather handles add a great look—and they are so practical!  Perfect for shopping or carrying projects, this filled-base basket measures 13” x 5” at the base and stands 13” tall.  Immerse yourself in a day of weaving and enjoy your creation for years to come.    Thanks to Lynne Marrs Hammer Ferguson, Artist in Residence, Kentucky Museum for her inspiration in creating this basket.

Fee includes:  Materials, handout, materials preparation, use of tools, and instruction fee. 

Students should bring the following if they have the supplies on hand. I will bring some extra tools, so no one needs to purchase supplies in order to attend.
