Katherine recently shipped this basket off to Alabama. The buyer wanted an Easter basket for her new grandson. She was particularly fond of the zig zag side weave that she saw in a photo of an oval shopper we had for sale on the website. This round version came out quite nice and really does look great for an Easter basket. I guess I should have popped some colored eggs in for the photo!
Katherine will be teaching an “oval shopper” class that uses this zig zag weave at the Columbia Basin Basketry Guild’s annual fall retreat -Tidal Twinings- on the Oregon coast September 16-20.
