Plaited Cedar Basketry Tool Kit

Using natural and dyed Western Red Cedar, we begin this class by exploring twill work techniques and patterns. Students will weave a beautiful plaited "mat", which will then become the cover for this unique tool pouch. A wool felt liner to secure and protect essential basketry tools is then sewn into place. Natural buttons of shell, bone, wood or bamboo are used as closures for this lovely and functional kit. Additionally, students will receive a set of foundation basketry tools, including a Clover graduated awl, Weaverite packing tool, small scissors, hemostats, microclips, darning needle and glover\'s needle. This unique tool kit will see you through years of basket weaving inspiration!
