Create a Mellon-shaped Egg Basket using the construction techniques of South Central Kentucky's traditional basket makers.
Students will learn the Kentucky-style 'eye', carving ribs, rib placement, the addition of secondary ribs and weaving. We'll discuss rib basketry and how to achieve a variety of shapes. Materials for this class are oak hoops and reed ribs and weavers. If you own an egg basket, please bring it along to share its story with the class. While at the Museum, be sure to visit Standing the Test of Time: Kentucky's White Oak Basket Tradition exhibit.
This basket is 10" in diameter and is for weavers of all levels.
Space in this class is limited and the deadline to register is December 16, 2016
