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:

=== July ===

=== August ===

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.

July - Introduction to Twill Weaving, Small Twill Market Basket Class, Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL

Introduction to Twill Weaving, Small Twill Market Basket Class, Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL

Introduction to Twill Weaving, Small Twill Market Basket Class, at Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL Friday, July 15, 2016

Learn a basic two-over-two twill weave while making this precious smaller market style basket. Twill is a little challenging, but results in that lovely diagonal pattern on the bottom, and up the sides of the basket. Choice of handle make it either a traditional, longer market basket, or a square, slop-sided Williamsburg type basket. Either way, it is a beautiful, classic basket!

This class is also being held on Saturday, July 16, 2016, if you can't make it on Friday! Because of the complexity, the class is limited to 6 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. $48.00. July 15, 2016. 10:30 am – about 4:30 pm.

August - Casserole or Project Basket Class, Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL Warning: I may not be able to get wide enough handles, so the bakset may have to use strap handles!

Casserole or Project Basket Class, at Cootie Coo Creations, High Springs, FL Friday, August 19, 2016

Students who wanted a flat basket carrier instead of a tote - here it is! Big enough to hold a large casserole dish, or one of those plastic project bins at the Coo! If I can find wide enough handles, it will feature bouble swing handles. If not, we will use strap handles. Either way, it will be big enough to hold that beautiful 14 inch paper laying flat!
