Students will be able to choose the rough dimensions (to a limit) of their custom basket as we explore different techniques to weave into their utile carrier. Over the course of the day, students will complete the base, weaving, and rim of a finished basket to take home, but also to take time and explore creative expression and handwork through craft.
