Everyone can use another basket. In this hands-on program we will make a basket from the simplest of materials, paper. Using grocery bags, old maps, newspaper comics or any fancier paper, the basket is woven flat and shaped into a container. All you need besides the paper and a few simple tools is an affinity for the ancient rhythm of over-under, over-under.
