I finally was able to finish the basket making classes with the Batesville Middle School 7th graders. The weather let up enough for the ice to melt and they had school this week. Some really nice work, too! There is usually one or two in each class who create really outstanding baskets. I’m proud of each and every one of them!
It’s interesting how things go in spurts – we did more scalloped edges with the classes in this session than I’ve done in all the other classes taught here. With the first session of the school year we had more garlic baskets. Not sure what drives those minds and fingers.
Makes me wonder how the work in the final session later in May will turn out.
