We had to change the date for our next weaving class in Fallon, NV to March 25, 2023. we worked on the design for the cradletop at our last class. We will be starting on the weaving parts and arms for the next class.
Basket materials for a regular shade are 75-120 willows depending on whether you want to make a doll or infant size cradletop shade. They should be scraped and of a small size meaning that they should be less than 30" from the tip. Bottom should be about 1/8th of an inch. Of course, you will need bawuhp (willow thread) to weave the shade. Hamburg caning is acceptable.
If you need to start the cradle, you will also need yarn or thick cotton thread for the design. Sinew can be used but sometimes, it is slippery and doesn't stay in place.
We are working on more classes so as soon as we finish it, we will send out to members.
We are also working on a survey so members can provide us input on what they would like to do.
Hope you can make it for either of these dates. If you have any questions, text is best and quickest to get ahold of me.
This class is being funded by membership monies so if you did not received a notification email, then your membership has probably lapsed. We will have applications and membership can be paid when you come to the class. Membership is annual from the date you pay.
