While we have already had one basket class here at my Lopez Studio for the textile guild, the first basket class open to everyone was held this last Saturday: "Simple Lattice". The baskets didn't quite get finished, due to our limited time together. But I was very pleased with the class, and the students seemed to be as well. Weaving, chatting, sharing - it really is what basket weaving is all about!
Our next formal adventure into lattice twining will be "Spearmint" on Saturday, December 13th, and we're hoping that a few more adventurous souls will join us.
Scheduling classes in November and December is always challenging, but we are planning to meet at least one more time before the next class to finish up the first baskets.
My dream of teaching on the island has started!
