Lu Howard, basket weaver

Learn to create a basket with Lu's guidance. Everyone will work on a 5" x 10" x 4.5" tall, rectangular basket with a diamond pattern of dyed reed embellishment along the sides. At the end of the day you will have a basket to take home and enjoy. Please dress to get messy; bring an old towel, a spray bottle, hand pruner, a dozen clothes pins, ruler or tape measure and an awl or narrow, flat-blade screwdriver if you have one. Class fee includes all other supplies, pattern and equipment. Lu is well known at the Gardens for her lovely basketry; learn from a master!
