Random Weave Egg Basket with Fabric and Vines - SOLD OUT LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This basket is a fiber lover’s dream! You will make a traditional Appalachian style egg basket with a twist– fabric and yarn will be incorporated amongst natural vines to create a fun and colorful look. 

We will start with a grapevine frame with 3-point lashing and then use random weave techniques to give the basket a soft but sturdy construction. I will share techniques for creating well-woven random weave while also maintaining a balanced look. There is a lot of room for your individuality to shine in this basket and I encourage you to bring fabrics and yarn that you love to incorporate into the basket. You will go home with a finished basket, instructions to create many more, and inspiration to continue weaving.

This class is appropriate for students at any level. Some hand strength is required.


We will be working with your hands in and out of water.   

Katie can be reached by emailing katiegroveart@gmail.com with any questions.
