The second day, students pack baskets tight, level the top, weave a false rim, cut and tuck spokes, insert a hardwood handle, and complete the rim and skids. Lastly, add an adjustable webbing or leather harness for carrying. Linda will guide you and teach you many tips and techniques. Students will be using a drawknife and other sharp tools.
