Calliope Basket Kit (Makes 2)

Sale price$ 48.00 USD
Color Mix:
163 in stock

Natural raffia coils beautifully, transitioning organically from one color to another, creating a lightweight unique basket.  Learn this wonderful basic basketweaving technique, while not worrying too much about counting or exactness. GREAT BEGINNER BASKET WEAVING KIT! Shape your basket however is desired from flat to a curved container. There are so many ways to play with using two colors in your basketry--this free-hand way is a great way to start!

Kit includes enough to make 2 baskets:

:: 4 50 g bundles of Madagascar Raffia, 2 in each of 2 Colors
:: Sharp Darning Needle
:: Clippers
:: Muslin Bag
:: Calliope Basket Pattern and Video

Basket measures 7.5" by 2" as shown but this can be variable depending on your desired size and shape. The last one I made was 6" by 1".

If you're looking for just the pattern, you can find it HERE.  Do you want to purchase the raffia on its own, look HERE.

Calliope basket

I haven’t started my kit yet but the product is beautiful and the instructions seem clear. Looking forward to starting them in the next day or so.

So much fun!

I ordered this on a whim! I've never done this before and it has been fun to learn. I was able to learn how to do it easily through the video and the instruction sheet along with a little bit of trial and error. It is relaxing and fun and doesn't take as long to do as you would imagine! I'll definitely be purchasing more.

Sharon Baris
Good fun

I was looking for a project, and found it. These 2 baskets were simple, and provided lots of concepts for a beginner like me.
