Melon Basket

Instructor: Joh Ricci
Description: Discover the foundational skills in traditional, rib-constructed basketry that yields strong and beautiful round-bottom baskets. In this two-day workshop, learn how to properly secure the hand and rim hoops by lashing them together to form an 'eye' on each end of the basket, and carve and insert ribs to build a framework on which plain weaving is done in an over-one-under-one pattern. Tuition includes basket supplies. NOTE: This class meets on Saturday, June 26, from 11 am to 4 pm and on Sunday, June 27, from noon to 4 pm.
