2021 is my sixth year teaching basketry classes.  

In a one day workshop:  

We will make a frame basket, traditional to the Roma peoples of Europe.  Learn to make hoops, work with the willow, add ribs, make a God's-eye fasten, and shape your frame basket.  All students make and take home their own willow frame basket.

In a two-day workshop:

We make a round-base basket, like the one in the picture on the left of this page.  Learn to make the slath, two-rod twining, staking up, 3-rod waling, French randing, a waled border, and handles of your choice.  Take home a round-base basket to use for the rest of your life and the skills to make more.
