Basket by Lori Schue

A hollow dried gourd provides the foundation for a beautiful basket sure to accent your autumn décor. Learn to apply a coil-woven rim and long-leaf pine needles to complement the gourd’s natural beauty. A discussion about various materials used to create gourd crafts helps students expand their versatility in basket weaving. Students supply their own straight-nosed garden clippers and a dish towel. All other materials—including gourds, pine needles and shared tools—are provided. A $35 supply fee is payable to the instructor.
