Weaving Sampler

I took a basket workshop lead by Debbie Hurd, a basket maker from Arkansas. 

I completed a round basket with a wooden base that showcases several weaving techniques.  The basket has bands of triple twining, triple twine arrows, a lacey variation of French randing and a unique rim embellishment.

Black dyed reed offers a strong contrast to the natural cream color of the reed.
