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.  There will be several colors to choose from.
