Double Wall Bowl Basket

The Central Pennsylvania Basket Weavers Guild assembled in February to weave a double wall bowl basket.  Member Debra Zvanut led the class.

Starting with a double slotted base, the inner basket was shaped as it was woven.  It acted as mold for the outer basket.  I used dyed purple reed to contrast the natural cream reed of the outside. 

A decorative band of  French Randed Arrows was woven using of four colors.

The top edge of the basket is woven together using a 3 piece double lash technique.
