Advanced Basketry: Tray of X’s with Dona Nazarenko. #1415-0530. 1 day.
May 30 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$64. – $105.
This is a long rectangular basket accented with dyed reed making x’s along the way. The side weaving includes twining and plain weave to give a graceful flare. The rim is lashed on with waxed linen and has beautiful leather handles. Tips on pattern repeats, placements and shaping make this a stunning display piece. This basket is recommended for advanced weavers. Intermediate weavers may find this more of a challenge and may have to finish the piece at home.
NOTE: This basket is recommended for advanced basket weavers. Students may wish to bring an apron to protect their clothes.
