Wonderful class, and perfectly timed for a wet and gloomy day outside. Adrienne is a great teacher and even though I'd done a class with her before, I still got a lot more out of this class. Perfect for new and experienced weavers. Can't wait til the next class!

I enjoyed the instructions and my "basket" made of freshly harvested road-side grass looks more like an energy bar for a frisky rabbit it helped me past the hesitation of trying this type of baskets . Today at vegetable store I bought fresh corn on the cob especially for the nice husks and might even eat the corn later. Looking around there are a lot of plants with big strap leaves that would make some very nice baskets and I did find a plant nursery nearby for occasional free trimmings. Not to mention the the exotic color selection of bricklayer's twines at the building supply. Inspiring, thank you.
