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,

Nancy

Video #11c--Lashing the Rim Singeing the Basket

video

This is part c of our three parts that explains how to lash the basket and how to finish the lashing. While the basket is still damp I continue to demonstrate singeing the basket hairs. As I stress in the video, do NOT burn your basket hairs if you have already stained your basket. It will go up in flames fast.

Baskets of Blessings,

Nancy

Hello!

First off, your videos are wonderful! I did some basketweaving in high school and wanted to restart and your videos have been so helpful!

One thing I never had to start/stop was the lashing. Is there a way that maybe you can take a couple pictures of the basket during the process to see what it looks like up close when this process begins and ends?

Thanks!
Melissa

Hello!

First off, thank you for your videos! They are very helpful! I haven't made any baskets since high school and your videos are great refreshers!

One step I didn't have to start/stop was the lashing. Is there a way that you could take a few pictures throughout these two steps to show what the basket looks like up close and how it looks before the lashing has been pulled tightly?

Thank you!
Melissa

Hi Melissa,
Thank you for your kind words about my basket weaving videos. I truly appreciate them and they make my day!!
I will suggest that you go to video 18a as I also show lashing a rim on in that video as well. Perhaps you can see it a little better in that video.
Blessings,
Nancy
