Coiled Basket

We this weekend saw me take part in a course to make a Coiled Basket. Rosanna Strong was our instructor, not only is she very creative but a great teacher who had tons of patience.

My basket ended up to be quite eclectic but in the end I feel it shall fit wonderfully in the nursery with all of it's wild colours.

We were provided with lots of different mediums ranging all the way from waxed floss, paper raffia, a variety of yarns, ribbons and embroidery floss.

I even managed to put handles on the sides, not evenly and a bit too small but they are there!!

The centre of the basket did start out rectangular so I'm not quite sure how I ended up with a round basket!! The beginning part is very time consuming and intricate work. It will definitely take a lot of practice to learn how to keep your loops and hoops the exactly tension.

All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend the weekend.
