Here's a basket to take wherever you go and keep your drop spindle or small project with you. Students will learn how to weave a filled base as well as weave and shape the sides of a small traditional backpack style basket. The basket will be finished with a long leather handle, rims and lashing. 

Dimensions of basket are 11"high at the back and approximately 5" wide. 

Please note this workshop is held in a heated tent and your hands will be in and out of water.

Skill level:  Some basket weaving experience is helpful.
