This basket is woven with cedar bark spokes and willow bark is woven in a continuous twill pattern. We will shape the basket in the style of the Cat’s Head basket associated with the Shaker tradition. These baskets start with a square base and are woven in a unique way to achieve a rounded shape. The rim of this basket is a decorative variation using yellow cedar bark three strand twining.
