New to basketweaving? Get your feet wet as you learn to weave a small antler basket tray. It can be used on your dresser to hold coins or hung on the wall as a decoration. Students will learn rib-style basket weaving on a pre-drilled antler spike with primary ribs inserted, using rattan reed as the weaving material.
Tools to bring: dish pan or small water bucket, towel, scissors.
