Lynn Hoyt Classes at NCBA

Baskets I'm Teaching at NCBA, 2010

Please take a look at these photos of the baskets I'm teaching at NCBA Convention in March. Unfortunately the brochure photos didn't show the color or detail at all. These are a better representation of what they look like. I hope you'll tell your friends to look here and will consider them when selecting your classes. Thanks. Lynn Hoyt

Gleam-n-Glow Beaded Mini Gourd
Lynn Hoyt
4 Hours
All Levels
2 1/4"H X 3 1/4" D
page 31

Learn to bead coil on these gently undulating mini gourds. These vibrantly colored little vessels will gleam and glow with every stitch as you coil flat across the top with fragrant sweetgrass. Color coordinated options offered. A treat for the senses and a darling basket for rings and small treasures.

Oval Fantasy Sweetgrass Necklace
Lynn Hoyt
4 hours
All Levels
2 1/4"W X 2 3/4" H
page 40

Lots of techniques will complete this colorful sweet-smelling pendant. You'll start by learning to inlay a handmade gilded stoneware medallion into an oval gourd piece and apply a woodburned accent. Then coil the pendant with fragrant sweetgrass, add a brass finding and twist a waxed linen neck cord. This is small work, so manual dexterity, a small light and possibly magnifying glasses are recommended.

Watch this space for more brochure highlights! If you are an NCBA 2010 teacher, and would like to highlight your classes here, please email me.

Wow! I LOVE Lyn's gourd! I hope to make it to the convention next year. If I can firm up my travel plans, I will certainly take her class. Does anyone know how quickly these classes fill up?

Hi J.R.
Class registration is currently open for current NCBA Members. Online registration is at http://www.ncbasketmakers.com Reigstration will be until Dec18, at which time clases are assigned...it is done randomly, by computer. At that time, some classes will be filled entirely. But we have a second round of registration, the next month. This is for people who have joined NCBA later. There are still plenty of classes to pick from. It is easy to fill your schedule if you like many different kinds of baskets. I recommend you go to the website and investigate membership now. Soon the entire convention brochure will be posted on that site, and you will be able to see everything.

Pamela, I appreciate your putting up photos of my class offerings. Thanks for doing this for the teachers.
