Weaving a Market Basket

Learn the basics of basketry by weaving market baskets. This utilitarian tote is perfect for the farmer's market or picnic, and also makes a nice countertop organizer. Learn to weave an open and closed bottom, and different techniques for basket construction including "chicken feet," and "Start and Stop,' on the sides of the basket and "cut and tuck," finishing. Different colors of reed will be available to weave in accents and focal points. Students can expect to weave two market baskets.
