Woven Melon Basket Workshop
September 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$60.00
Join Sandi Moede and Sweetwater Flower Market in crafting a hand woven basket from start to finish. This sweet little basket is called a melon basket for its shape. It’s a ribbed basket and very easy for beginning weavers to make. It is 8 inches in diameter and has 2 wooden hoops for the rim and handle. Basket color is natural reed. Sandi will provide tips for staining it if you would like to dye the basket a different color. It’s perfect as a fruit basket or catch all basket by your front door or anything else you want to use it for. The basket is made of flat reed and is a sturdy basket that has multiple uses.
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!

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!
