Melon Basket – The basket will be a fun experience! It may be a challenge for beginners in "ribbed" baskets but the group will be small enough and we will work together! It will also teach the “God’s Eye”, a weaving attachment that holds together the hoops. One hoop being the handle & base and the other hoop being the rim of the basket. The Melon Basket is a very useful and functional basket, especially for display in your home! This basket reinforces the basic weaving of a ribbed basket. All ribbed baskets were developed for functional purposes "on the farm" by the owner. This makes each antique basket unique not only for its age but for the design itself! The size of the basket often varied depending on the need of the farmer. have an 8" Stain is optional, I will have oak & walnut, a fun day for sure!
