Cathead Basket with Handle
I spent a relaxing weekend at the 8th Annual "Weaving Your Cares Behind" retreat in beautiful Bedford, Pennsylvania. I took two classes from Pati English, a juried artisan, basket maker and instructor from South Carolina. If you ever have a chance to take a class from her, don't pass up the opportunity. You will learn a lot from Pati. (www.BasketsMySpecialty.com)
The basket started with a cats head open weave base. The sides have a band of triple twining in blue reed plus a blue and cream over two under one trail. The rim of the basket used a cable stitch over a seagrass filler.
