Easter Egg Hunting Basket

Dates: Wednesday, February 26, or Saturday, February 29 and Finish Your Basket Day on Sunday, March 1.

*Confirm by February 17th, so there is enough time to order the hoops!*

Places: Wednesday will be at Ben’s Place in Grass Valley. Saturday and Sunday will be at Debbie Scott’s home. Directions will be sent to participants.

Time: 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM or earlier…depends on you!

Cost: Teaching Fee: $25.00 for guild members, $30 for non-guild folks. Materials fee is $35.00 due to the cost of the hoops plus shipping.

This is a rib style basket. It uses an 8″ round hoop for the rim and an 8″ x 12″ rectangular hoop for the handle. I will be pre-forming 8 of the ribs for you as they need to dry for at least 48 hours. We will be using #7 round reed for the ribs. You will have your choice of colors of 1/4″ flat and #3 round reed for weavers, plus seagrass. You can make this as bright and colorful as you wish.

Experience is helpful, but not mandatory…I will help you. We will be doing frequent “rib checks.”

You should have plenty of time to make this for Easter, which is April 12.
