Basketry - Cathead Rattan 1F23

Challenge yourself to create an intricate woven basket in this 4-hour basket-weaving workshop.

The Cathead basket can be a bit challenging to shape as it requires much attention to detail.  Previous rattan experience is recommended.

This cute four-foot basket would be great in any room or on the table holding muffins.   It’s a 6”x6” woven base which extends out to a 10” diameter.

Join a creative, supportive craft-making space and build your weaving skills.

William Krier

William Krier

Born and raised among the Amish community in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, William Krier developed an interest in the art of basket weaving and has been practicing this art since the 1980's. He enjoys the challenge that wicker basketry brings. Using a variety of agents from commercial dyes to nut hull stain to teas, William dyes and stains all of his own reed.

Weaving traditional baskets using bright colors is William's way of contemporizing the art of basket making.
