Monetary course fee is waived for this session; please bring a donation of hats/scarves/gloves/mittens to donate to local folks in need.

Spring Blossoms Basket


with Christine Smith

Calendar Mar 12, 2020 at 6:30 pm, runs for 2 weeks

This storage basket measures 11” across and 8” high.  It is woven in continuous weave and goes quickly. Then we will add a tree in full spring bloom.  A couple of years ago, we made this basket with a tree in fall colors. If anyone  didn’t get to make that basket and would like a kit, I can make one for them.  I am hoping to make the summer and winter trees next year. Then we can have the full year in a set of beautiful baskets. Materials fee of $20 (cash please) payable to the instructor at class.
