Using video, visual, and written instructions, Brittany will walk you through using rattan reed and basketry tools to make a handwoven basket. This course will cover how to weave one style of vase basket and discuss the process of weaving many different vase shapes. Learn the importance of tension and ease in your basket weaving and apply techniques to achieve various basket shape outcomes. The vase basket holds dried flowers and, with a liner, can contain a traditional flower arrangement. Flowers delivered to a friend in this basket would be a special gift!

This basket course covers rattan basket weaving techniques. The material we use is called rattan reed and is processed from a tropical vine. The vine is turned into different sizes and shapes and imported as a basket weaving material. Resources for this material are included in the instruction manual. 

The approximate completed size of this basket: 

Dimensions: 3-inch wide base x 8-12 inches tall. It can vary in width depending on the shape woven. 

  • Please note that every basket will turn out slightly different depending on the person weaving. No two baskets are identical, as this is a handcrafted piece, and each weaver will approach the process slightly differently. The dimensions included here are the intended outcome but may be altered or turn out slightly smaller or larger.
