January General Meeting: Wall Basket Hands-On Project with Sheila Tasker

  • Multnomah Arts Center Auditorium 7688 Southwest Capitol Highway Portland, OR, 97219 United States (map)

About the program

Start the year off right with a hands-on basketry project among friends.  To create a lacy wall basket, we will twine around a double cross base, chase the diamond weave, twine four rows and create a two-step border.  The finished product will be 9" high, 2" wide, and 2" deep (including handle). 

Tools to bring:  spray bottle, soaking bin, flat awl, and tapestry needle. 

The meeting will open at 6:30 p.m. with library and social time.  We will call to order at 7:00 p.m. for Guild announcements, member sharing, and the monthly program.
