I so enjoyed taking a class with Flo Hoppe and her helper Fran. The class was at the National Basketry Convention in Kentucky.
Flo taught Japanese Basketry techniques using her patterns and sample baskets and a lot of hands on help. It was a fantastic experience and this is one of the baskets I made of flat or round reed during the 3 1/2 day class.
I’m not sure what the intended use of this basket is, but it obviously has a handle with crossing reeds. I like the cane knot embellishment on top of the handle.
