Class #21

Weave a Muffin/Bread Basket with Leather Handles

Denise Arzberger

October 25 | 9 - 4

Serve your favorite muffins, buns or cookies in this useful basket or use it to store mail, CD's or odds and ends. This versatile basket features a decorative weave in your choice of colors and is finished with a pair of braided leather handles. This is a great basket to acquaint all level weavers with basic weaving techniques including shaping, twining for the decorative accent, and inserting leather handles. Finished size is approximately 9" wide x 11" long x 5" high. No weaving experience is necessary. Please bring the following supplies to class with you: clippers with a narrow blade or strong scissors, several clip clothespins, pencil, flexible tape measure, small flat screwdriver, needle nose pliers, pail or dish pan, plant mister and an old towel.

Denise Arzberger has appreciated baskets for their function and beauty for as long as she can remember. She took her first basket making class in 1989; from then on, she was hooked! Denise enjoys designing baskets for functional use. Many patterns she has designed and taught are intended to add a creative twist to a traditional style of basket. Denise has taught since 1995 at technical colleges, recreation departments and The Clearing, as well as at basketry conventions in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
