About the course

Students will learn how to make a very different bottom and special woven sides. The basket had two rims. A pair of ceramic handles that I made will be used on the sides to make this a very unique basket. Emphasis will be put on shaping this basket and manipulating the spokes and weavers to achieve this awesome criss cross pattern. The rims will be carefully scarfed and more time will be spent teaching this technique. Together we'll also create a Heart Basket! This is a basket that can be hung on the wall or used on a table for many things. The basket shown has Spanish moss on it, if time allows I will be showing you how to decorate it further with dried and silk flowers. Think of the possibilities!

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.
