Class Description: This small basket is sturdy and functional. It is a spoked basket and although it includes a lot of different basketweaving techniques, it can be done by students with minimal or no basket experience. Students will make a basket about 9 inches in diameter and four inches tall. Because it uses so many techniques to make the basket, it is a great learning basket.
