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.

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!

Beanpot Basket Class, at The Rooster Tail Boutique, Chiefland, Saturday, January 20, 2018

One of our all-time most popular basket classes, the round base, rounded shape, and wire swing handle make this basket a real favorite. The shape is easy to achieve for a beinnger, making this a great "first basket", and is also fun for a more experienced basket weaver. The name "Beanpot" refers to the shape, not the use - don't try to make with it!
