Japanese Techniques Class with Flo Hoppe

Reed

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.

This basket is named after the sets of 4 flat reeds that wrap over each other to make wave shapes at the rim and sides.
