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 .
