About the course

In this class, I will teach a double-wall basket using a wood bottom. Techniques include twill, continuous weave, ti-twining, triple twining full Gretchen Border. If time allows I will teach some other techniques as shown in the baskets pictured. With those, I will be teaching the technique, but not the entire basket. The double-wall basket will be finished and then I'll show some solid bottoms, herringbone, handle wrapping. The Cat head basket will be a bonus class. I will show the technique to get a nice cat head shape on your basket and then show some various ways to weave it.

About the instructor

Cheryl Dixon

I am from Lafayette Indiana and still live there! I have always loved different types of arts and crafts. I get that from my Mom. But after making my first basket in 1984, I was hooked for life. I started selling my baskets at our local basketry shop, which is very rare. It used to be difficult to find basketry supplies, let alone classes, so I was so lucky that we had the Weaver’s Mill, otherwise I likely would never have learned. I then started teaching at the shop and eventually ended up owning my own store, The Basketworks after the owner moved away. I have taught in many states at conventions, retreats, and wherever there are people who want to learn! I also teach 4-H classes and it is my hope that by doing classes now with Curious Mondo that it will benefit teachers and students alike all over the globe.
