Coiled Basket Kit - Turtle Design


For the intermediate basket maker with experience making a beginner coiled basket.

Coiling is the basketry method where one material is wrapped around another in a spiral. The wrapping material is soft and pliable and used for weaving together the rows. The inner material can be a bit sturdier or can be the same material used for wrapping. This kit requires patience and perseverance.

Basketry is one of the traditional crafts taught in a Waldorf high school.

Kit includes:

  • fiber rush
  • raffia
  • tapestry needle
  • color photo instructions
  • information about turtle symbolism

You supply: water, scissors and a ruler

This basket takes approximately 6 to 8 hours to complete over several sessions with frequent breaks.

Kit makes one coiled basked about 5" to 6" wide
