Market Basket Weaving Workshop

October 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$90.00
Craft a gorgeous market basket, with a solid wood handle, from start to finish during this workshop at Sweetwater Flower Market.

Join Sandi Moede and Sweetwater Flower Market in crafting a hand woven basket from start to finish. This market basket has a solid wood handle that measures 10×14”. The basket is woven around the handle and measures 16” long and 6” high. It is a super practical basket with all kinds of uses. NOTE, the photos show the basket color with a stain. The workshop will be crafting it with natural reeds. Sandi will provide tips for staining it if you would like to dye the basket a different color at a later time.

A complete basket can be made in a few hours (not sitting in a closet waiting to be finished!) and it will be something to be used and not just sit on a shelf collecting dust. And the joy and sense of accomplishment that YOU made this will make you smile!

Tickets are limited, so be sure to reserve yours today!

Workshop includes:

  • A seat in our lovely studio
  • An apron to wear during the workshop to protect your clothes from damp reeds.
  • Personalized instruction
  • Tools
  • Basket supplies
  • A gorgeous 16″ long and 6″ high market basket to take home!

Ticket cost: $90/person + tax and Eventbrite fee

*Note: No prior experience in basket weaving is necessary, however the basket does require focus. Class participation is for ages 18 and up.

*Comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting damp are encouraged.

Instructor Bio:

Sandi Moede is a Colorado Springs native. Several years ago she took a basket weaving class like this one and knew that this would become a passion. She has made countless baskets and loves to share this ability with others. A complete basket can be made in a few hours (not sitting in a closet waiting to be finished!) and it will be something to be used and not just sit on a shelf collecting dust. And the joy and sense of accomplishment that YOU made this will make you smile!

*No cancellations or refunds will be accepted but if you are unable to make it, we will allow your spot to be transferred to someone else with 48 hrs notice. Thank you for your understanding.
