Barbara designed this basket inspired by patterns discussed in a class on sacred geometry. The Fibonacci sequence of numbers exists in our daily world and woven together this sequence produces 13 glorious spirals. Students will begin the project by weaving a two-by-two twill base. Students will learn a technique for hand-shaping this base into a “cathead” or four-footed basket with a raised base. From there, using natural and hand-dyed reed to provide contrast, students will weave up the sides in a pattern which creates 13 spirals around the basket. Hand-shaping techniques will be stressed, allowing students to produce a beautifully proportioned piece. Along with weaving instruction, Barbara will lead a discussion on, “The Nature of Numbers”, a talk on where the Fibonacci sequence exists in nature, including numerous examples.
