Checkerboard Picnic Basket taught by Connie Denton
Weave a beautiful and functional picnic basket! This basket measures about 14” x 14” x 14” and includes a solid wooden base, two hinged carrying handles and a solid, wooden lid. Flip the lid over and there’s a checkerboard game pattern!
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), wooden base and lid and 2 swing handles with ears.
