Round Cherokee Style Storage Basket

Taught by: Ruth Boland

Workshop Fee: $250.00

This storage basket is woven with a Cherokee style design.  The pattern is created by specific placement of the dyed vs natural weavers and stakes.  Students will weave the base by twining, which results in a solid bottom.  Students will then upset the stakes.  The sides are woven using start/stop rows. Once the sides are complete students will “down stake”, measure and scarf their rim, and then lash the rim to the basket.  The finished basket will be approximately 10” high and 15” across. Some color choices will be available.  This class is appropriate for all levels of weavers, beginner as well as those with experience.  All materials and tools will be provided.
