10" Melon-shaped Egg Basket Workshop with Beth Hester

 - Glasgow, Kentucky

Date: March 28, 2019

Create a basket that’s perfect for gathering eggs or holding your sewing projects.  In this workshop you’ll learn techniques used by traditional basketmakers in South Central Kentucky -- the Kentucky-style ‘eye’ and carving ribs.  The Melon-shaped Egg Basket is easy-to-make and recommended for beginner to intermediate level weavers; the spherical shape makes this the simplest egg basket.  Hoops are solid oak; ribs and weavers are natural reed material.  Students may add rows of color using dyed or smoked reed if desired.  Size:  10 inch diameter.
