|Participants display their stair step baskets.|
I spent Saturday with the High Country Basket Weavers Guild leading a workshop on a stair step basket.
The basket is unique with two bases - a lower base and an upper base. This design allows the basket to sit on a stair step. The basket can be a collection point for items that can be later carried up stairs in one trip.
I provided a variety of colored reed for a decorative band around the basket. Everyone selected different ways to accent their basket.
It was a fun day of basket weaving and everyone went home with a stair step basket.
