I teach basketry classes at a variety of art centers, state parks, and craft shops. The classes always include all materials, use of tools, and a fun time! All you have to bring is yourself, perhaps a friend or two, and something to snack on if you want. Unless otherwise stated, all classes are for those 16 years or older.

CLASSES and EVENTS:

=== April ===

=== May ===

Class fun Make an heirloom and have fun doing it! Baskets are fun, and can be very easy to make. I have classes ranging from beginner through intermediate, and into advanced skill levels.

Tell me about your group or organization and I will prepare a class proposal for you. The proposal outlines what facilities are needed, what classes will be taught, and what financial arrangements will be made.

All class prices include all materials needed to make the basket, use of tools, instruction, and lots of fun!

Organizational hosts may receive a portion of class proceeds, and individual hosts may receive their basket for free with minimum enrollment.

Call me at 423-494-5373 for more information.

April - Potbellied, Cathead style Purse or Wall Basket Class, Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL

Potbellied, Cathead style basket class, at Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL Friday, April 29, 2016

Whether you chooose to use it on the wall, or make it into a purse, this is a bit challenging - it uses a narrow base, cathead shaping, forming the 'potbelly', and an optional dipped front rim. As a wall basket, it has a bushel basket style handle. As a purse, there are lots of options for the strap. You might want to call or email me if you have questions about the strap!

This class is also being held on Saturday, April 30th, but that class is FULL! Because of the complexity, the class is limited to 5 students so that you get plenty of individual attention.

To register, contact Sharon at Cootie Coo Creations, 386-454-8008, or go by the shop when it is open Friday through Monday.

Class fee includes all materials, instruction, and use of tools. $60.00. April 29, 2016. 10:30 am – about 4:30 pm.

Square Based Gathering Basket Class, Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL

This is a roomy, square based basket with a center handle. Use it in the garden for gathering tomatoes next summer, carry in some pecans or hickory nuts in the fall, and fill with holiday ornaments or pinecones in the winter.

Easy to make, this is a good beginner basket, and enjoyable for the more experienced basket maker. Add your choice of square top or round top handle. Will have plenty of colors available for choice of accent colors, or weave it plain for a more traditional look.

Dress comfortably and be prepared to get just a little messy. Bring a towel or apron if desired. Bring a sack lunch if desired. Have some fun, and take home a new basket that you will be pleased to show off!

To register, contact Sharon at Cootie Coo Creations, 386-454-8008, or go by the shop when it is open Friday through Monday.

Class fee includes all materials, instruction, and use of tools. $45.00. Friday, May 29 OR Saturday, May 30, 2016, 10:30 am – about 3:30 - 4:00 pm.
