Learn to Weave the Basic
Join us for a hands-on basket weaving class, no experience necessary! This virtual studio class is a relaxing setting with step-by-step guidance from start to finish.
This studio class is appropriate for absolute beginners age 10 and up, as well as more experienced basket weavers. We'll use natural materials and simple tools to create a timeless work of art that will be a nice addition to your home decor.
This basket requires natural rattan flat and round reed and different techniques to make a basic square basket great for holding desk accessories, napkins, or other household goods.
This basket is designed to be completed during the one session workshop. You will leave feeling refreshed and renewed with your weaving skills, and a completed basket ready to bring new cheer to a spot in your home.
- Material Kit for purchase here: Basket Kit
- Prior to class, fill your kitchen sink or tub with cool or room temperature water to soak the reed material. Soak material for 20 minutes prior to class. Tools required include craft scissors or snips, an awl, ruler, and a towel.

About the Instructor: Kay learned the art of basket weaving when she was a new Mom and in need of a Girls Night. It quickly turned into weekly events, and many, many baskets. Kay often sold baskets at a local gift shop to clear space for new creations. Thirty years later, Kay still makes time to spend in the studio every week, and gets excited for the opportunity to encourage new weavers to grow their skillset.
