Basketry



Wine Basket for Two Bottles

Barbara Boughton

This basket begins by weaving a solid bottom onto a red-oak handle, creating a very sturdy base for carrying two bottles. While weaving up the sides, a separate weaver is introduced on the inside of the basket, creating two compartments, keeping bottles from bumping. Students have the option of embellishing the top of the basket with a variety of decorative weaving techniques and strips of hand-dyed weavers. The basket is 5" wide, 8" high at the sides, and 14" high at the handle. This is a great basket for holiday entertaining or gift-giving!
