Using Painted Paper to Weave Baskets!

Using hand painted paper to weave and form baskets is a new technique which promises to take basketry to a higher level of artistry, with no previous experience necessary.  The Rickie Report is eager to share Mary Catello’s newest class offering!  Mary sent us an example, which you can see in this post.  We can’t wait to get a glimpse of her students’ creations!
