Weaving a Ribbed Melon Basket

Melon Basket

1 day class

Ribbed-weave basketry is a fascinating technique that yields beautiful and strong round-bottom baskets. As you learn to use basic basket-making tools and equipment, you will weave your own melon basket using hoop construction and 4-point lashing. We will teach you how to form the ribs and then weave and evenly shape your basket. You will take home your completed melon basket at the end of the class. We will also discuss additional finishing techniques.

This class is from 9 a.m – 5 p.m.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
