Cedar Basket Workshop

Event Date: 
Jul 12 2013 - 11:00am - 6:00pm

For this cedar basket we will be using lots of different weaving techniques such as the standard weave, twill, diagonal weave, and twinning. The core of the basket will be cedar with other grasses and barks woven in. This basket will be a little smaller and a more intricate weave.  Some previous weaving experience will be helpful, but not necessary.
