Random Weave and Palm Baskets
**This class will be taught in two sessions, One basket each night. Class meets Sunday and Monday night (first and second sea day)

Two baskets in one class! In this class we will spend the first evening creating a random weave basket. we will use a simple technique to create a basic shape and have the ability to amend that shape as the vessel takes form. You can make a basket as tall as you want split directions, or add a handle, regardless of material! Natural material and reed will be available, you can mix the two if desired. The finished piece can be made to sit or hang on the wall. (The sample picture for the random weave baskets are reed on the left and palm inflorescence on the right). The next evening we will make a palm basket. I will bring palm sheaths from Hilo Hawaii and using my folding technique we will make a palm basket that can be used for dry arrangements, kitchen utensil storage, etc. I will also teach my signature philodendron rose to finish the rim on all the pieces.
