Free Basket Weaving Mini-Workshop

Free Basket Weaving Mini Workshop:

Ever wanted to try your hand at basket weaving with reed? Well, come to our free mini-workshop following the January meeting and give it a try. The Basket Study Group will show you how to make coasters and ornaments for the MAFA Conference goody bags. All the MAFA member guilds contribute items to be given to conference attendees. Come help make ours — and have some fun with your guildmates in the process.

We’ll be using the “tension trivet” technique, which you can use in the future to make all sizes trivets, using different sizes of weaving materials. Check out this You-Tube video to see how it’s done: Beverly Ashton Vickers video
