May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Unique Basket Rim

This basket has an interesting rim. I used #6 round reed as a filler and then coiled on 11/64" flat reed around it, lashing it to my top row of weaving. The design on the front strip that goes over the handle is a rubber stamped image. I also rubber stamped directly on the handle itself. The stamping was done before I stained the basket.
Happy Basket Weaving,
