Registration is online NOW, and I would love to have you in my classes!

I am teaching Friday, March 18 and Sunday, March 20.

Here is a little more about my classes:

Horsehair Kisses
FR 1443m, page 30 in brochure (top right)
Friday, 1:30pm - 5:30pm
4 hours
Make a tiny basket on a lanyard to decorate your phone, zipper, or key ring. Learn how to start a horsehair basket from scratch.

These adorable charms can be open bowls or the vase-like "olla" shape. Joined to the lanyard with a split ring, you can easily convert your horse kiss to a necklace, if you so desire. There will be color choices!

REQUIRED: Good finger dexterity and previous coiling experience. Bring light, small sharp scissors, tiny clips and a magnifier. This is tiny work! Very few basket makers work in this medium, this is your chance to learn how!

Random Weave Garden Basket
SU442, brochure page 43, top left
Sunday, 8am - noon
4 hours
All levels

Random weave is so much fun! Make a great handled basket, as shown, or use your imagination to make your own shape.

We'll be using a lovely segmented vine that looks like bamboo, it is a lovely light honey color and is lightweight and smooth on the hands. This class is a great way to wrap up your convention!

These baskets are fabulous accents in the garden or on a porch, and function beautifully as planters. We will discuss use of the basket in the garden.

If you have questions about the classes, please feel free to contact me!
