Basket Weaving Glossary

We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
Base--Bottom of a basket.
Stakes--These are the foundation of a square or rectangular basket. They help form the base and then go up the sides of the basket vertically.
Spokes--These are the foundation of a round or oval basket. They also then go up the sides of the round basket vertically.
Weaver--This is what goes horizontally around the sides of the basket.
Twining--This is done with round reed. It is a half twist in the round reed and is created with either two separate strands, or one strand that has been bent in half.
Packing--Packing is pushing the weavers tightly together as they are woven up the sides of the basket.
Splicing--Splicing is when you run out of a weaver before you are finished so you need an additional piece of weaver to complete the row or basket.
