Free Form Basket Weaving!!!

I had the nicest time last Saturday in the Freeform Basket Weaving class I took, I thought I’d share some of the photos. The instructor Deb, was great and I met some nice new friends. The class was held in the home studio of Gretel, another artist, from the Grove Gallery Co-op (next to Woven Arts in East Lansing) she teaches silk painting, and I have taken a couple of her classes and really enjoyed them tremendously! For the finishing bit of my basket I used some of my hand spun yarn. I could see where Deb had woven in yarn on some of her beautiful baskets and I thought I might try the same. I’m still deciding if I like it, I may unweave it and finish with the same color flat reed that is on either side. I think I’ll live with it awhile and look at it with fresh eyes, then decide. I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire right now, so there are plenty of projects and classes to keep me occupied!!!
