Students will lay up a “cathead” base and learn the shaping for a Shaker Style cathead without the use of a mold. Weaving the sides can be accented with a dyed weaver.  Rim fitting, scarfing and lashing will be taught.  Students will have a choice of leather or oak handles. 

Basket dimensions:  13”D x 9”H

Experience:  All levels.  Great for beginners!

You'll do a lot of sitting in this workshop and your hands will be in and out of water.

Instructor provides: all rattan (stakes, weavers, rims, lashers) purchased, prepped and ready to complete the basket in the time allowed as well as rattan that has been hand-dyed for the appropriate accents.    

Students do not need to bring anything to class unless they would like to have a notebook and pencil.
