I have basket class this week! I am doing a Round Melon Basket with Bev Larson at the Morton Community Center on Thursday night 2/23. I CAN'T WAIT! I've missed the smell of wet reed, the flexibility of said wet reed, the texture achieved from different types of weaving, the amazement of a beautiful, functional basket taking shape from your hands.
Bring it on! I'll take a photo and post it later for you to see.
