Join us at the Gallery on the Square in Franklin, Kentucky for a fun day of weaving.  In this easy-to-make-basket workshop, students will learn techniques for shaping their basket and creating perfect rims.  You’ll enjoy the process of making this generously-sized basket using natural reed, dyed reed, and paper splint; the set of leather handles add a great look—and they are so practical!  Perfect for shopping or carrying projects, this filled-base basket measures 13” x 5” at the base and stands 13” tall.  Immerse yourself in a day of weaving and enjoy your creation for years to come.    Thanks to Lynne Marrs Hammer Ferguson, Artist in Residence, Kentucky Museum for her inspiration in creating this basket.
