Weaving a Round Reed Basket

Basket weaving is a beautiful craft that we all should know not only for its beauty and functionality, but its sustainability. Baskets are made of easily collectable and biodegradable materials, and tend to outlast plastic.

If you can’t attend the program, you can find the instructions for your own basket here!
