Learn to make a rib basket made from reed, with accomplished basketmaker Kathy Barham. Kathy chose the rib basket with handle because the hard part is at the beginning and easy part is at the end. If anyone doesn’t finish their basket in class, they can easily do the final steps at home. Kathy will use two half day sessions instead of one full day so students don’t get fatigued.
Cost is $83 per student, which covers $45 for tuition and $38 supplies fee for reeds, beads, and handles for baskets.
“My basket weaving started with my interest in learning more about the Cherokee culture, and now I have been weaving for about 20 years. What I like about weaving baskets is they all have their own individual look. A lot of the fun is gathering natural materials to incorporate into the baskets and also dyeing the reed.
Supply list for students to bring to class.
Scissors or snips that are able to cut the reed.
Sharp knife about the size of a paring knife
Spray bottle for water
bucket for water
2 old towels
awl or knitting needle to use for packing.
