Students will learn to weave a base using a ‘D’ wooden handle. The construction of the sides of the basket will be a bit challenging but worth the effort!! Students will have a choice of colors for the ‘top of the basket’. The color choices are navy, dark green, orange, and maroon.
All Materials are provided.
Enjoy a homemade meal at the Nome Schoolhouse with your class.
Hi I’m Marcy Blikre. I have been weaving for over fifteen years and belong to the Headwaters Basketmakers Guild (Bemidji, MN), Minnesota Basketweavers Guild (Minneapolis, MN), and the National Basketry Organization. I attend three to four workshops each year to learn various weaving techniques and to get new ideas from the teachers and fellow weavers. As a retired educator, I love to teach basket weaving to those interested in this lost art form. A useful basket is one of beauty and purpose. For the past five years, I have sold baskets at various shows in North Dakota (West Fargo, Fargo, Minot, Bismarck, Harwood).
