Random Weave Basket

The kit arrived in excellent condition and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. I’ve never tried cane weaving before but was very impressed with my finished basket.

Lovely basket

It's a lovely little kit. It's beautifully packaged, with easy to follow instructions. It took an hour or so to make. I love it and everyone I've shown it to wants one too!

Wonderful fun

I’ve always wanted to try basket weaving. This class is a wonderful introduction to weaving cane. Easy to follow instructions and videos. All in all a really fun class. The only thing I would have liked extra, would have been instructions on how to dye the cane. However that is just nit-picking and me just being awkward. I would definitely try doing this again, but I might try weaving around a hand sized rock next time.
