A very long time ago, I said I was going to do a series of posts on weaving basket bases. Well, I get distracted – there are so many basket related topics to write about, my list just gets longer and longer! The good news is a few weeks ago, I wove this base and got some photos. So here it is – a tutorial on the continuous weave filled basket base.
Each April, Pam Feix, Debbie Cates and the Whitewater Basket Guild in Richmond, Indiana host a spectacular three day basket weaving event, Stateline Friends Weaving Retreat. Four hundred people (basket weavers, basket teachers and vendors) gather together to weave baskets, learn new weaving techniques, stock up on basket kits and supplies, enjoy each others company, catch up with old friends and make ones.
That’s right, Eat, Sleep Weave about sums it up. 🙂 Read more
This week I will be teaching one of my new basket patterns, Recursion, at Stateline Friends Weaving Retreat in Richmond, Indiana for the first time.
So I am releasing the pattern!
Recursion is a set of 5 or 7 nesting baskets, made with 1/8″ or 1/4″ strips of painted paper. These bias weave baskets range in size from 3 ¾” x 3 ¾” x 2” down to 5/8” x 5/8” x ¾”. So much fun to make!
