Workshop Overview

In this workshop, students will start with a simple spoked base using rattan. Students will taper a second set of stakes to create this double spoked base basket, creating a starlike center to the base. Students will then weave and shape the sides of this handsome, utilitarian round basket with a continuous weave. The basket is finished with a sturdy rim and leather side handles. Shaping, rimming, scarfing and lashing will all be taught.

Field Basket dimensions are approximately 8″ H x 13″ in diameter.

Appropriate for all levels.
