First you'll learn how to make increases to create a flat-bottomed round. Then you will use a different stitch to build the sides of the basket. Finally, you'll have the option of attaching leather handles to your basket with rivets.
You will also learn how to source materials and adjust the pattern to make baskets in different sizes and shapes. Your class basket measures approximately 10 inches in diameter and 8 inches tall. Invite a friend or family member--our online workshops are a blast and adults and tweens/teens ages 12+ are welcome to attend!
Upon enrollment, your kit will be shipped to you (anywhere in the U.S.) along with instructions for attending class. Enroll by June 20th to allow for shipping time.
Your Kit Includes:
• 40 yards of white cotton rope
• Two leather straps with holes punched
• Four sets of Chicago screws to connect straps
• Pattern with photo tutorial
You may need a flat head screwdriver to tighten the strap screws.
