A successful tray-making class

The first photo shows the collection of trays with basket edging made in today's basketry class. Four trays were made by my students and one by me. The image shows these trays displayed on one of the tables in the Ottawa Valley Weavers and Spinners studio.

This is the finished tray of one of the students, Patricia. Others felt they needed to spend a little more time on the finishing touches. They promised to read the instructions I gave out very closely, and to study the photographs and commentry in my June 9th blog.

For readers interested in making similar trays, visit my Etsy shop and examine the tray kits there. In addition to the materials needed to make such a tray, each kit contains written isntructions as well as a reference to the June 9th eight-step blog that shows how to make such a tray.

For the next two Sundays, I will have one or maybe two students in my home to learn how to make a sewing basket.
