Snake River Lazy Kate Basket taught by Connie Denton
Make your own Lazy Kate! This basket is designed by you using a variety of dyed and natural colored reed. It’s a basic basket shape with a large D handle. There’s enough room to hold 3 bobbins and a tension device, with plenty of room in the basket to hold fiber, yarn, tools and snacks. It measures about 12” x 18” x 18”.
Students should bring: 2 plastic tubs or basins (at least 12” x 12” for soaking reed), strong sharp scissors, an old towel, a flat headed screwdriver or an awl. (Connie will have extra tools and basins to share.)
Connie will supply all weaving material (natural and dyed), 18” D handle, spindles for holding 3 bobbins and tension device.
