October Guild Weave

Central Pennsylvania Basket Weavers Guild held their October basket workshop at the East Berlin Community Center on Saturday.  Twenty members gathered to weave a Sunflower Basket taught by member Joanne Sheriff.

The basket begins with an eight inch round oak base with a sunflower carved into the base.  Using natural flat oval reed the sides are gently raised for 20 rows.  A row of thin green and wider brown reed is woven to suggest a flower once the golden reed curls are attached. 

The curls are added on both the inside and the outside of the basket to make the petals of the sunflower.
