Select your weaving materials from a variety of colors and construct your basket, measuring 10" x 16" x 6" (with handle 12") once complete.
Previous experience working with rattan/reed is helpful although not necessary.

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.
