Explore the basics of weaving a simple basket by creating a Sally Bag with a simple two-color pattern.  Finish this in time to give as a unique Mother’s Day gift! This class will cover weaving a round base, single twining, double twining with two colors, and finishing a rim.  This basic basket also has a fabric liner that will be made in class.  Hemp material for basket warp will be provided.  

Supply List:
Students will need to bring two small skeins of contrasting Cotton Worsted 4-ply yarn to the first class for their weavers (i.e. – for use with US size 7 knitting needles) and a small piece of cotton material will be needed for the last class.  We’ll talk about this in the prior two classes. Students may also want to bring their own pair of scissors.
