July workshop with Martina Obersat

Guild member Martina Obersat taught an introductory random weave basket. After the ribbed melon basket structure was completed, the bowl of the basket was woven randomly--with a variety of reed widths, sizes and colours available. Every basket was different and many students enjoyed working randomly, without a pattern.
Thank you so much to the family of Elizabeth Evans for donating their mother's reed to the Guild--we used her beautifully dyed reeds for these baskets and will use more in the upcoming six-point star basket taught by Nancy Hager in September .
