Shaker Cathead Basket

Adirondack Folk School 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne, NY, United States

The Shaker Community, founded in New York, is known for their design aesthetic, combining form and function in simply elegant ways. This class introduces students to the Cathead base, a Shaker classic. In this form, a small, square-base, grows into a round basket, at the diameter and height of the student’s choosing. This particular technique of weaving corners, produces four “feet” upon which the basket rests. This creates a raised base on the inside of the basket, allowing its contents to first fill the perimeter of the basket, and then the center. Disbursing the weight of the basket contents, first to the perimeter, serves to prevent produce from becoming bruised, and protects the center of the basket from wearing out. Students will weave a two-by-two twill pattern for both the base and the sides of the basket.

Two-Toned Twilled Tray

Adirondack Folk School 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne, NY, United States

Weaving with natural and hand-dyed stakes and weavers allows for patterns to develop in the base and sides of the basket. Weaving the base creates a quadrant design which follows up the sides. Students may weave a pre-determined base pattern, or design one of their own using skills learned to plan the design. Students will also make the leather handles to finish the basket. Dimensions: 15" long x 12" wide x 5" high.
