Nesting Melon Baskets
Explore rib basketry as you weave melon baskets that nest inside each other. Work with oak hoops as well as dyed and natural reed. Learn to weave “God’s eyes” where the handle and rim meet, cut and insert ribs, and weave nicely rounded baskets. Experienced students will complete three sizes while beginners should finish two, taking home the materials and knowledge to complete a third and continue weaving on their own.
