Indian Corn had to be boiled and rinsed three times before it could be cooked. This basket was used in the same way we would use a colander. Aside from washing corn, this Basket is great for storing yarn or magazines. Students will use a continuous twill weave to build this 8” tall, square to round basket. The only challenge if any in weaving this basket is the shaping. This reed basket will be hand shaped. Registration is $85 + material fee of $25 (paid in cash to instructor).
