Beginner Coiled Yarn Baskets
Watch this site for the next class – Fall 2013!
I am delighted that Emily Latour, retired Art Teacher, will be presenting a workshop on coiled yarn baskets. It is a simple technique which allows you to create all kinds of vessels and decorative items. The wrapping and building technique produces a very strong object that can be developed into a variety of shapes.
- Yarn – almost any weight and fiber yarn can be used. The examples on the left and right are made with sock/fingering yarn or DK/Sport weight. The center is made with a heavier worsted yarn. All yarn used on one project must be the same weight.
- Clothesline Rope, Sash Cord, Large Raffia (about 1/4″ in diameter) – The clothesline rope MUST be either cloth or polyester – NOT PLASTIC. Note: Sash cord is bigger than clothesline and can be purchased in a hardware store.
- Yarn needle
Lovely, colorful yarns of all weights and fibers are available for purchase at the shop, as are yarn needles. Clothesline is available at Walmart or Lowes.
